What is a drivetrain
A car drivetrain is a group of working parts (components), that interact with the engine and feed power to the vehicle’s wheels, allowing the automobile to move. There are four different types of drivetrains: front-wheel-drive and rear-wheel drive, also referred to as two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive.
What is a powertrain
People often confuse the drivetrain with the powertrain because they essentially have the same function, providing energy and generating power for cars to move forwards and backwards. The difference is that the drivetrain only powers a car’s wheels, whereas the drivetrain is a component of the powertrain, which also consists of the engine and motor.
Is the transmission part of the drivetrain
Yes, the transmission is an integral part of the drivetrain as it keeps the engine turning along with the wheels.
The drivetrain is made up of:
Common problems with the drivetrain
Drivetrain issues are most apparent due to the noises they make because it’s imperative to keep the components of a drivetrain lubricated.

Family Owned Since 1972
Gordon Lentz opened his first auto repair shop in 1972. Trained as a mechanical engineer. His first exposure to the automotive repair business came in the early 1970's, when he was selling storage systems to muffler repair shops. He could see room for improvement in a lot of the shops he visited. He took a chance; quit his job, and invested his life savings in building his own auto service center. Today, Lentz Auto Repair is still family owned and operated, guided by the same simple mission that started over 45 years ago: “treat our customers as we would like to be treated and provide quality products at fair prices.”
Auto services are performed on non-commercial vehicles and are accompanied by a limited warranty. If a warranted part fails to perform during the time of ownership, simply return to any LENTZ USA Service Center with your receipt for repairs. Family owned and operated since 1972.
