The answer to this question is relatively simple. Your car may not be drivable! The axle is constantly rotating and flexing to accommodate different road conditions, thus it can become worn out, resulting in a broken axle. Also, if your automotive shocks are wearing out, hitting any bump or pothole in the road could result in a broken axle. However, because car axles are built for strength, most people don’t keep a vehicle long enough for them to actually break.

How your vehicle’s wheels and suspension system keep doing their jobs is basically dependent on the condition of the axles. The axles assist in the driving, steering, and braking, linking the power from the engine to the tires, plus carrying the whole weight of the entire vehicle. An axle that is going bad puts extra stress on the automotive shocks, causing them to wear out faster than normal as well as adding excessive wear and tear on the tires. These repairs can be quite costly in replacing an axle, automotive shocks, or tires.

So how do you know if you have a broken axle? There are three major signs that you will notice:

  • You cannot drive your car (there is no power being transmitted from the engine to the wheels).
  • A sudden clunking sound heard when shifting into gear.
  • Excessive vibration felt while driving or braking.

Are you wondering what can cause axles to break?

  • Too heavy. Every vehicle is designed with a maximum load capacity. When there is too much weight, such as too much cargo or too many passengers, the axles may not be strong enough to hold that weight.
  • Metal fatigue. This is especially more common in older vehicles, high mileage vehicles, or those that carry excessively heavy loads. As axles age, they become more brittle or rusty, diminishing their strength.
  • Poor road conditions. Too much stress is added to the axles from bumps in the road or potholes while carrying the weight of the vehicle.
