What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1988 Dodge Lancer

Your Lancer drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Dodge, from back to front. It’s one of your Lancer’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1988 Dodge Lancer, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Dodge's recommendations.

What Are Dodge Lancer 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1988 Dodge Lancer drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Lancer might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Dodge Lancer drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1988 Dodge Lancer drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
