What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1997 Chevrolet Corvette

Your Corvette’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Chevrolet, from the axles to the transmission.

When you tune into you 1997 Chevrolet Corvette drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. You can minimize repairs by following Chevrolet's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Chevrolet Corvette Drivetrain Repairs

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.

Your Corvette might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. 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. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Chevrolet Corvette doesn’t drive like it used to.
