The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Escort's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Ford, from back to front. It’s one of your Escort’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1983 Ford Escort to maintain its performance 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1983 Ford Escort drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Escort 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. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Ford Escort drives.
Is normal to wonder whether or not 1983 Ford Escort drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable.
