2018 Ford Escape Drivetrain Service

Your Escape drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Ford, from back to front. It’s one of your Escape’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2018 Ford Escape, 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.

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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2018 Ford Escape drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Ford could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. 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.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2018 Ford Escape drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
