The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Contour's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Ford, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Contour’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 Ford Contour, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Ford's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
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 1998 Ford Contour drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Contour might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Ford Contour.
How much does it cost to fix your 1998 Ford Contour drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
