2008 Acura RL Drivetrain Service

All About 2008 Acura RL Drivetrain Service

Your RL’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Acura, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your RL and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2008 Acura RL, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Acura's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2008 Acura RL drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. 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. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. 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.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2008 Acura RL? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
