1996 Ford E-250 Econoline Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1996 Ford E-250 Econoline

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your E-250 Econoline's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your E-250 Econoline and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you tune into you 1996 Ford E-250 Econoline drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Ford's recommendations.
