1986 Ford Aerostar Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1986 Ford Aerostar

Your Aerostar’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Ford, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Aerostar and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 Ford Aerostar, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Ford's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Ford Aerostar Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1986 Ford Aerostar drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Aerostar 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 Ford Aerostar doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1986 Ford Aerostar drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
