1996 Chevrolet Caprice Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1996 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. Care for your 1996 Chevrolet Caprice to maintain its performance 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 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1996 Chevrolet Caprice drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Chevrolet Caprice may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." 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.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1996 Chevrolet Caprice? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
