Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / Automotive
English term or phrase: driveline / drivetrain
Driveline: Everything in the drivetrain except the engine and the transmission (trad. encontradas: línea motriz, línea de dirección)

Drivetrain: Entire moving part of the car: Engine, clutch, transmission, driveshaft, differential, axles and sometimes the wheels (maybe tren de tracción, tren motor).

Transmission: A device (full of gears) that uses gearing or torque conversion to effect a change in the ratio between engine rpm and driving wheel rpm. (Transmisión, aunque a veces sospecho que se trata de la caja de cambios)

¿me podrían ayudar a encontrar los términos más adecuados? Parece que en castellano no queda muy clara la cosa. Gracias.
