CV Shafts and Boots
Cloquet Automotive offers complete service for the cv shafts and boots of your vehicle's drivetrain. Our drivetrain specialists recommend that your cv boots are inspected with every oil change as they can easily become torn or cracked. These tears and cracks will allow dirt into the joint and require both boot and and join to be replaced. If you hear a clicking noise while turning your car or truck, or perhaps a clunking noise schedule an appointment today before the problem gets any worse.
U-joints and Drive Shafts
Cloquet Automotive provides u-joint and drive shaft diagnosis and repair services at our transmission shop. We recommend your drive shaft and U-joints be inspected regularly for optimal performance of your vehicle. Trucks and SUVs commonly have drive shaft slip joints requiring lubrication. If you hear a squeaking when you accelerate from a stop or driving you should schedule an appointment at our shop in Cloquet as bad U-joints can actually result in your drive shaft to seperate from the vehicle.

Differential gear repairs and modifications are everyday tasks here at Cloquet Automotive. Even though your differential may look very complicated and complex they really are quite simple when broken down and that is what the video below does a nice job of. The real trouble with differential repairs isn't the actual repair as much as it is trying to effectively explain to our customers how a differential works and why repairs or adjustments need to be made. To help us out with this task check out this great visual and verbal explanation of how your differential works.
Who doesn't love a good black and white presentation, and we promise you will have a better understanding for a differential and how it works after watching. Enjoy!
