What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 Buick Reatta

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Reatta'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 Reatta and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1989 Buick Reatta, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Buick's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Buick Reatta 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1989 Buick Reatta drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Buick Reatta may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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." 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 Buick Reatta drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 1989 Buick Reatta drivetrain? 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 sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
