1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Drivetrain Repair

All About 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Drivetrain Service

Your Cavalier’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your Cavalier and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Chevrolet's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Chevrolet could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style.

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