2004 Ford Escape Drivetrain Service

Your Escape drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your Escape and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2004 Ford Escape, 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 Ford's recommendations.

What Are Ford Escape 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2004 Ford Escape drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Escape 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. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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 Escape doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 2004 Ford Escape drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
