1996 Buick Regal Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Regal's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Buick, from back to front. It’s one of your Regal’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1996 Buick Regal to maintain its performance power. Follow Buick's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Buick Regal 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 fix many 1996 Buick Regal drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Regal might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Buick Regal doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1996 Buick Regal drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
