All About 1996 Chrysler Town & Country Drivetrain Service

Your Town & Country drivetrain transfers power from your 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 Town & Country and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1996 Chrysler Town & Country to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Chrysler's recommendations.

1996 Chrysler Town & Country Drivetrain Questions

When you have drivetrain problems, you have driving problems. Check out our top 1996 Chrysler Town & Country drivetrain Q&A below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care with any drivetrain concerns.

  • How does Chrysler drivetrain maintenance help save money? Servicing the drivetrain system can help you save money by saving other parts of your vehicle. A bad drivetrain can put undue stress on other vehicle parts and lead to premature wear and tear.
  • What are the symptoms of a damaged Chrysler drivetrain system? Noises toward the back of your Chrysler Town & Country, leaking fluid, trouble turning — these could all be signs of drivetrain damage you want to address. Take action before something more severe happens.
  • How often will I need Chrysler Town & Country differential service? We recommend getting your differential inspected and the differential fluid changed as a part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine. Your vehicle cannot function without a differential. Differential service frequency varies from car to car.
  • What triggers the malfunction indicator light (MIL) in a Town & Country? If your Town & Country has its malfunction warning light (more commonly called the check engine light) illuminated, it could indicate engine troubles, problems with the transmission, electrical issues, malfunctioning sensors, connector problems, or misfire issues.
  • Can you clear the Town & Country check engine light on your own? While resetting a malfunction warning light at home is technically possible, doing so is not advisable. The check engine light is typically a sign of a problem in one of your Town & Country's systems, and simply resetting the light will not address the underlying issue. Instead, you should bring your vehicle to a reliable auto shop to have the underlying problem identified and fixed to help ensure the safety and reliability of your Town & Country.
  • How serious is a drivetrain malfunction in my Town & Country? If your Town & Country has a drivetrain malfunction, don't wait. Get it checked out by a professional mechanic. Identifying the underlying cause and performing the appropriate repairs right away can help prevent further damage and avoid unsafe driving conditions.
  • Is the transmission considered part of the drivetrain in my Town & Country? Yes, the transmission is an essential part of your Town & Country’s drivetrain. The drivetrain consists of components — like the transmission — that transfer power from the engine to the wheels to move your Town & Country forward. Other components in the driver train include the axles, differential, and driveshaft.
