1997 Ford Escort Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1997 Ford Escort Drivetrain Service

Your Escort drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Ford, from the axles to the transmission. 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 1997 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.

What Are Ford Escort 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1997 Ford Escort drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Ford could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for 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.

How much does it cost to fix your 1997 Ford Escort drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.

Drivetrain problems mean driving problems. Get answers to common drivetrain questions and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for drivetrain help.

  • Can Ford service save me money? Servicing the drivetrain system can help you save money by saving other parts of your vehicle. A bad drivetrain can put undue stress on other vehicle parts and lead to premature wear and tear.

  • How often should I come in for Ford Escort differential service? We recommend getting your differential inspected and the differential fluid changed as a part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine. Your vehicle cannot function without a differential. Differential service frequency varies from car to car.
