1991 Ford Escort Drivetrain Service

1991 Ford Escort Drivetrain Service

Your Escort drivetrain transfers power from your 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 1991 Ford Escort, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Ford's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1991 Ford Escort drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Ford Escort drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1991 Ford Escort? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
