How Much Do You Know About Powertrain Parts?

  • webmaster
  • Jun 04, 2021

It’s no secret that cars and other vehicles are some of the most advanced technologies that people use every day. There are millions of pieces that have to come together to make the vehicle work properly. While each and every component plays a key role in making things operate smoothly, the most important parts of the vehicle (those that make it go) are known as powertrain  parts. You’ve probably heard this term before in ads, commercials, or warranties, but do you know what they are? We’re gonna talk about it today, as well as discuss your options for replacing any powertrain  parts that get damaged.

What Are Powertrain Parts?

The powertrain  is composed of the parts that make the vehicle move. Some people lovingly call them “the go parts.” powertrain  parts are responsible for providing the vehicle with motion. Generally speaking, powertrain parts include:

– The Engine

– The Transmission

– The Front and Rear Drive Systems

– Seals, Gaskets, and Other Internal Parts

– And More

 

There are far too many individual parts to mention, but these are the major players in the powertrain . By working together, these parts convert gas or diesel fuel into energy which is then used to produce momentum to move the vehicle forwards or backwards. As you would imagine, the powertrain  is one of the key elements of any vehicle, and any problems within it can leave your car useless. Luckily, powertrain parts are often the most well-built, and they’re designed to work hard for years without any issues. Many dealerships and manufacturers offer powertrain  warranties that protect the powertrain  for so many years or miles. It’s a good idea to get a powertrain  Warranty whenever you can because they’re some of the most expensive parts to repair or replace out of pocket. 

Why Are They Talked About So Often?

What is all the hype about powertrain  parts? As we said, the powertrain  is arguably the most important system within a vehicle. If just one part of the complex chain reaction goes awry, your car might not start, run, or function as intended. Powertrain  parts need to be inspected regularly to make sure everything is in working order. The last thing you need is an engine failure in the middle of a highway! The safety and reliability of powertrain  parts is directly correlated to the safety of the vehicle and the passengers in it. There is a significant emphasis on these parts because manufacturers and dealerships understand how crucial it is to keep these things running smoothly. When consumers look to purchase a new vehicle, they want to hear about the powertrain  to make sure it’s top-of-the-line, reliable, and backed by a significant warranty. 

 

     The powertrain  is truly the power behind the vehicle, so it’s constantly being revamped to make it bigger, better, faster, and stronger. Powertrain  is particularly important to pickup truck enthusiasts as the strength of the truck determines towing capabilities, weight capacity, off road ability, and more. Showcasing the powertrain  has become a staple practice in the marketing of vehicles to show consumers that they can trust the durability and performance of Car A over Car B. As for why you so often hear about powertrain  warranties, it’s because they’re a huge selling point for buyers. If you know that this system of parts is critical to performance and also very expensive, you’ll be looking for a warranty that will cover the costs should anything happen. These warranties help to make the purchase decision easier and alleviate buyer’s remorse.

Used, Remanufactured, & New Powertrain Parts

As with all car parts, there are several options available to you when you’re looking to replace aspects of the powertrain .

 

Used: You can find used engines, transmissions, etc at just about any auto salvage yard you visit. However, we do not recommend going this route for replacement parts. Used parts are taken as-is from one vehicle and sold to consumers to be used in another vehicle. They come fully equipped with wear and tear, damage, and internal problems that you wouldn’t be able to spot just by looking. Yes, you will save potentially thousands of dollars, but the powertrain  is not a part of the vehicle you want to take a gamble on. You might get a few good years out of your used parts, but they will break down eventually. 


Remanufactured: Our suggestion to customers is always to go for remanufactured powertrain  parts. Remanufacturing involves taking apart used car parts and separating them into each individual component. From there, everything is combed through by both human employees and high-tech robots and scanners to find any form of abnormality, crack, or other problem. Only the parts that are 100% like-new make it to the next step. Once there are enough components to make a complete part, the remanufactured engine or transmission is put together. It’s a Frankenstein part of sorts, but is guaranteed to use only components that are in mint condition. You’ll save hundreds or thousands of dollars by purchasing a remanufactured powertrain part, but you won’t lose any of the quality. It’s essentially a brand-new part and they often undergo more quality checks than fresh-off-the-line engines and transmissions do! Airline Auto Parts is proud to offer the best powertrain  parts possible for all types of vehicles. Our reman partners don’t cut corners to ensure that you get the safe and like-new reman parts you deserve.

 

New: Of course, you can always opt to purchase new powertrain parts, but be prepared to spend a pretty penny. Certain powertrain warranties will guarantee a new replacement if anything goes wrong, but others will not. Each company or salvage yard is different, so be sure to read the fine print. New powertrain parts aren’t any better than remanufactured engines and transmissions, and they cost exponentially more. When given the choice, choose reman!

If you’re looking for the best remanufactured powertrain parts in the US, look no further than Airline Auto Parts. Our reman partners are the best at what they do, following rigorous safety protocols and checking quality throughout the process. You can find remanufactured engines, transmissions, and more for any vehicle! You’ll save hundreds or thousands of dollars without losing any of the safety or reliability of the parts.
