1986 Ford Escort Drivetrain Service

Your Escort’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Ford, from back to front. 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 Escort, 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 Escort Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1986 Ford Escort drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Ford Escort may need driveshaft attention if you feel 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." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Ford Escort.

How much does it cost to fix your 1986 Ford Escort drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.

  • How often will I need Ford Escort differential service? Differential service frequency varies from car to car. Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician.
