What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1998 Ford Escort

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. Care for your 1998 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 want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1998 Ford Escort drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Ford Escort may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate.
