1996 Chevrolet Astro Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1996 Chevrolet Astro

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Astro's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Chevrolet, from back to front. It’s one of your Astro’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 Chevrolet Astro, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Chevrolet's recommendations.

When to Get Chevrolet Astro 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 1996 Chevrolet Astro drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Chevrolet Astro may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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 Chevrolet Astro drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1996 Chevrolet Astro? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
