1989 Chevrolet Caprice Drivetrain Service

1989 Chevrolet Caprice Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Caprice's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your Caprice’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1989 Chevrolet Caprice, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Chevrolet's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Chevrolet Caprice Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1989 Chevrolet Caprice drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Chevrolet could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Chevrolet Caprice doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1989 Chevrolet Caprice drivetrain? 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 sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
