• Driveline systems must cover sub-systems and components including clutches, torque converters, manual and automatic transmissions, drive shafts and final drives

• Diagnosis is to cover that for module and parts replacement in related electrical, electronic, pneumatic or hydraulic control systems

• Driveline system faults include abnormal gear wear, abnormal clutch operations, contamination, hard shifting, harshness, loose mountings, leaks, lubrication, noises, transmission slippage and vibrations.
