What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1988 Buick Century

Your Century drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1988 Buick Century to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Buick's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Buick Century 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 1988 Buick Century drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Buick could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice 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. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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 Buick Century doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1988 Buick Century drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
