The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Caprice's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Chevrolet, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Caprice’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 Chevrolet Caprice, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Chevrolet's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1986 Chevrolet Caprice drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. 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. 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 Chevrolet Caprice drives.
How much does it cost to fix your 1986 Chevrolet Caprice drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
