Did you know that the performance of your vehicle's wheel system is basically dependent on the condition of the CV (constant velocity) joints and axles? These components are involved in the steering, driving, and braking of the vehicle, linking the power from the engine to the wheels. They carry the whole weight of the vehicle, plus passengers and cargo. If undamaged, these joints can last up to 100,000 miles. Because the CV axle is constantly rotating and flexing to accommodate different road conditions, it can wear out and fail, resulting in a costly CV joint repair.

Can you drive a car with a broken axle? Without two operational axles, your car won’t be going much of anywhere. They’re what transfers power to the wheels from the transmission (in a front-wheel-drive setup) or the differential (in a rear-wheel-drive system). If one of your axles is broken, do not drive the car. It’s not safe.

If you notice a bumping, clicking or grinding noise when going into turns, your axle isn’t broken yet, but it’s only a matter of time. It’s most likely a failing CV joint. If the boot that protects the joint is damaged and the grease leaks out, dirt and debris will get in. Combined with the lack of lubrication from not enough grease, the joint will eventually tear itself apart.

If your axles are failing, you’ll still technically be able to drive your car. This is very risky, though, as they could completely fail at any point. When your axle fails, it’s possible that you’ll lose control of the car, possibly causing an accident or crashing. It’s a far better choice to have the problem diagnosed and repaired now, rather than trusting to chance.

Worried about driving with a broken axle? Contact our ASE Certified technicians at Auto & Fleet Mechanic for more information about CV joint repair and to schedule an appointment. Our auto shop proudly serves residents in Modesto, CA, and the surrounding area.
