The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your E-150 Econoline Club Wagon's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Ford, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon, 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.
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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1986 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your E-150 Econoline Club Wagon might need 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 parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon doesn’t drive like it used to.
Is normal to wonder whether or not 1986 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
