About Drive shafts

Integral to the car's ABS System, the Kia drive shaft is a mechanical part which is usually a hollow tubing made of steel with yoke/s attached to the end.

As the  Kia drive shaft rotates it connects the power from the car engine to the car wheels which enables the car to then move. This is essentially the part that makes the car move.

Positioned between the differentials and gear box, Kia drive shafts, being made of steel, are strong and solid and therefore most likely to deteriorate over a long period of time.  However, when signs of a fault do appear, it is crucial that you look into replacing the Kia drive shaft as soon as possible to avoid a complete malfunction of this part.

Drive shaft issues often arise as a result of hitting the kerb with your car wheels. Possible signs that there is a problem with the Kia drive shaft is your car shuddering upon acceleration from standstill or when driving at low speed; an alarming clunking sound in the drive shaft when you change gears;  a vibration felt whilst driving,  and generally any unusual knocking, grinding, rattling, squealing or clicking sounds coming from the draft shaft. You may also experience problems turning your vehicle as a damaged drive shaft can affect this, which it is most likely to happen when you are driving around a corner. A faulty Kia drive shaft  may also mean you will have issues when trying to park your vehicle. It's imperative to address drive shaft issues as soon as possible because if the draft shaft stops working completely your car will not be able to get power from the engine to the wheels and consequently you will not be able to drive your car until you have replaced the Kia drive shaft.
