U-joint Services in Marietta, OH

What is a U-joint & How Do I Know If it

Needs Serviced?

A universal joint (U-joint) is a joint or coupling connecting rigid rods whose axes are inclined to each other and commonly used in shafts that transmit rotary motion; holds the drive shaft in place. You may be wondering how you would know if your U-joint needs serviced, repaired, or replaced. There are a few signs, or symptoms, of a bad U-joint, including:
  1. Clunking and clanging
  2. Vibrations felt throughout vehicle
  3. Grinding and chirping
  4. Loud banging
  5. Joint movement
  6. Squeaking noise

What Causes U-Joints to Fail?

While your technician can tell you the specific reason that the U-joints on your vehicle have failed, in most cases, it is due to lack of proper lubrication. This could happen because the original factory equipment does not have grease fittings, or by inaccurate servicing in the past. The best way to ensure that your vehicle is running at peak performance is to allow the experienced technicians at Marietta Joint & Clutch provide you with the U-joint and other vehicle services you need.
