1998 Audi A8 Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1998 Audi A8 Drivetrain Service

Your A8’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Audi, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your A8 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 Audi A8, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Audi's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are Audi A8 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 Audi A8 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Audi A8 may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Audi A8.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1998 Audi A8 drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
