1983 Dodge Challenger Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Challenger's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Dodge, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Challenger and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1983 Dodge Challenger, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Dodge's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Dodge Challenger 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1983 Dodge Challenger drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Dodge could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Dodge Challenger doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1983 Dodge Challenger drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal 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.
