1999 Ford Escort Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1999 Ford Escort

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 the most complex systems in your Escort and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1999 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.

When to Get 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1999 Ford Escort drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Ford Escort may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. 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.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1999 Ford Escort drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
