1990 Chevrolet Caprice Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1990 Chevrolet Caprice

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 the most complex systems in your Caprice and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1990 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.

When to Get Chevrolet Caprice 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 fix many 1990 Chevrolet Caprice drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Caprice might need 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 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 1990 Chevrolet Caprice drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
