1988 Chevrolet Blazer Drivetrain Repair & Service

1988 Chevrolet Blazer Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Blazer'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 Blazer and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1988 Chevrolet Blazer to maintain its performance power. Follow Chevrolet's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

Chevrolet Blazer 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1988 Chevrolet Blazer drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Chevrolet could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on 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. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Chevrolet Blazer doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1988 Chevrolet Blazer drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
