Drivetrain

The components of an automotive vehicle that connect the transmission with the driving axles and include the universal joint and drive shaft.

The drivetrain composed of all the units joined together in a vehicle to make it move except for the engine. We usually speak of powertrain in terms of the engine and drive train.

From the front you have the flywheel on the rear of the engine, then clutch, then transmission, then driveshaft, then differential then axles to the wheels. That's a manual transmission. If you have an automatic, you won't have a flywheel or clutch. In their place would be a flex plate and torque converter. On front wheel drive cars, they sometimes have a transaxle, which is combination transmission and differential. Out from there are the axles to the wheels. These are sometimes called constant velocity joints.
