2003 Acura RL Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2003 Acura RL

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your RL's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Acura, from back to front. 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 2003 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

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2003 Acura RL drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Acura could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." 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.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2003 Acura RL? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
