2010 Volvo S40 Drivetrain Repair & Service

2010 Volvo S40 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your S40's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Volvo, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2010 Volvo S40, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Volvo's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

Your S40 might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards.
