All About 1987 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 length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your Escort’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1987 Ford Escort, 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 Escort Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1987 Ford Escort drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Escort might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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 Escort doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1987 Ford Escort? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
