CV Joints & Axle Shafts
So, what are CV joints and how do you maintain them properly to increase longevity? Simply, a CV joint is long-lasting grease that is protected with some rubber boots. Further protection is provided by sealing the grease to avoid any spillage. One of the most useful aspects of CV joints is their factory-made longevity. Even without any maintenance in particular, you should be able to stay worry-free about CV joints for years and many miles. The only time when this may not be the case is with a broken rubber boot that provides protection to the grease. If broken, grease will leak out overtime and leave no lubrication to the CV joints. By driving a vehicle whose CV joints are dry, damage will appear very fast.
If there is a reason to believe that your CV joints might need a check-up, Temecula Tire and Auto Repair might be the right place for you. Even if there are not apparent issues, doing a preventive look-over will save money to those who might have faulty CV joints. Extreme cases of CV joint breakage will mean your car needs to be towed. Fixing small leaks or a dry CV is a lot cheaper than completely replacing a broken one, and Temecula Tire and Auto Repairs can help you in this process.
