Axles transmit the power of your engine to the drive wheels. They are usually set into the transaxle on a front-wheel drive vehicle, or into a differential if the vehicle is rear wheel drive. Modern all-wheel drive vehicles will typically use both.
Axle issues usually become noticeable due to vibration, noise, or grease from either end of the axle itself from a compromised boot. If an axle fails at speed, it can be extremely dangerous, even life-threatening. Noise that increases with the speed of the vehicle can also be an axle bearing being damaged by a lack of lubrication. If you have any of the symptoms of impending axle failure, get your vehicle serviced immediately, and it would be wise to have it towed in to us for immediate inspection.
