1997 Acura RL Drivetrain Service

1997 Acura RL Drivetrain Service

Your RL drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your RL’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1997 Acura RL to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Acura's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Acura RL Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1997 Acura RL drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Acura RL may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Acura RL drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 1997 Acura RL drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
