CV Joint Replacement

CV Joint Replacement Portland
A CV joint connects your vehicle’s drive axles which then connect the transmission to its wheels. Its main function is to keep these parts connected and the torque consistent. It enables your vehicle to have range of motion while maintaining speed over different types of surfaces. If your CV joint has been worn down, as is inevitable over time, it needs to be replaced before it causes damage that will be more severe and costly. Ken Van Damme’s Automotive offers quality CV joint replacement in Portland by ASE certified technicians.

Often times, if a problem is caught early, the repair only involves properly lubricating the joint and replacing a cracked or worn out CV boot, which holds in the lubrication. If the damage is more extensive, it will involve a CV joint replacement. If left too long without a repair, the damage will get into the axle where it will require a repair or replacement. That is why bringing your vehicle in as soon as you suspect you may have a CV joint issue is so important.

What are the signs you need a CV joint replacement?

  • Grumbling and noisy vibrations, especially while turning
  • Humming or clicking sounds while turning
  • Vibrations in the steering wheel
  • Loss of speed and acceleration during turns
  • The vehicle feels like it is going over rough terrain when it is not
  • A loud crack followed by constant grinding probably means the CV joint has completely failed and you need to stop driving right away
  • It has been more than 30,000 miles since you have had a CV joint inspection
