1998 Acura RL Drivetrain Repair & Service

1998 Acura RL Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your RL's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your RL and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1998 Acura RL to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Acura's recommendations.

What Are Acura RL Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1998 Acura RL drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Acura RL may need driveshaft attention if you feel resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Acura RL doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1998 Acura RL drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
