What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2012 Ram C/V

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your C/V's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your C/V’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Ram C/V, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Ram's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

Ram C/V Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2012 Ram C/V drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your C/V might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Ram C/V.

How much does it cost to fix your 2012 Ram C/V drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.

  • How does Ram drivetrain maintenance help save money? Servicing the drivetrain system can help you save money by saving other parts of your vehicle. A bad drivetrain can put undue stress on other vehicle parts and lead to premature wear and tear.
  • How do I know if my Ram drivetrain is damaged? Noises toward the back of your Ram C/V, leaking fluid, trouble turning — these could all be signs of drivetrain damage you want to address. Take action before something more severe happens.
  • How often will I need Ram C/V differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car. At a minimum, we recommend getting your differential inspected and the differential fluid changed as a part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine since your vehicle cannot function without a differential.
  • Why is the malfunction indicator light (MIL) on in my C/V? Engine problems, transmission problems, faulty sensors, electrical issues, misfire issues, and connector problems could all cause your C/V’s malfunction warning light, or better known as the check engine light, to illuminate.
  • Can you reset your C/V’s malfunction warning light at home? Resetting a malfunction warning light at home may be possible sometimes, but it is never recommended. The check engine light is commonly triggered by a misfire, fault or malfunction in one of the vehicle's systems. It is important to identify and fix the underlying problem to ensure the safety and reliability of the vehicle. Resetting the check engine light without addressing the underlying issue may temporarily remove the warning, but it will not fix the root cause of the problem.
  • How worried should I be about a drivetrain malfunction in my C/V? If you experience a drivetrain malfunction in your C/V, it is important to have it inspected by a professional mechanic as soon as possible to identify the underlying cause and perform the necessary repairs. Driving with a malfunctioning drivetrain can be dangerous and cause further damage to your car.
  • Does my C/V transmission belong to the drivetrain system? Yes, the transmission is a key component of the drivetrain system in your C/V. The drivetrain is the system of components that delivers power from the engine to the wheels to propel the vehicle forward. It includes the transmission, driveshaft, differential, and axles.
