What Does A Drive Train Do?

drive-train-150x150Some parts of our car we’ve all heard about: the engine, alternator, axles etc. However, other lesser known parts play just as important a role. It doesn’t hurt to educate ourselves a little more about them. To help you do that, we’ve put together a quick overview on one of the lesser known parts: the drive train.


What does it do?

Without your drive train, your car wouldn’t go anywhere. Basically, it connects the wheels to the engine in a manner where the kinetic force generated by the latter can get used by the former. The speed of the engine and wheels don’t match, so they must get calibrated to the correct gear ratio. This gets done either manually or automatically.
