The inter axle differential (also called a power divider) is an integral shaft in the forward axle. That shaft is the input for the forward axle and also the rear axle with a differential separating the input from the output allowing for a difference in speed between the front and rear axle.
Not a Chrysler tech but the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) is normally a sensor at the transmission in front wheel drive cars located at the differential housing in order to count drive axle RPM. In rear wheel drive cars/trucks it would be found at the differential in the rear axle.
The rear differential is where the driveshaft meets the axle. Its right in the middle of the axle and is about the size of a basketball.
Front axle is a 9.25 American Axle Rear axle is a 10.5 American Axle
Yes, the differential can make a grinding sound.
Differential lock is a driver controlled locking mechanism which locks the speed differentiation of axle halfshafts in differential mechanisms.After locking, both wheels rotate in same speed.But the interaxle differential(IAD) lockstopsthe speed differentiation of two axles in Tandem axle vehicles by locking the inter axle differential(third differential),after locking IAD both pinions rotate in same speed.
Yes. So does the rear differential. The power divider distributes power to both axles at all times while the vehicle is in motion.
The axle the big round rod that runs between the tires. On rear axle the rear differential is located
No, and I'd be skeptical that any of them are "one wheel drive"... there's usually a differential on the drive axle... a typical warehouse forklift will have one axle driving, while the type used for specialized, outdoor purposes will have power to both axles. In most cases, these are non-posi differentials, so, if a wheel spins out, the differential will not lock, and all the torque will spin out of that wheel.
The axle of your car's wheels while you are driving.
The rear axle is a "live-axle", one solid axle connecting to the differential in the middle of the vehicle.
