What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1988 Buick Skyhawk

Your Skyhawk drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your Skyhawk and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1988 Buick Skyhawk, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Buick's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are Buick Skyhawk 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 take care of most 1988 Buick Skyhawk drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. 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. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Buick Skyhawk.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1988 Buick Skyhawk? 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 be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
