2000 Ford Escort Drivetrain Repair & Service

2000 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 the most complex systems in your Escort and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2000 Ford Escort to maintain its performance 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 not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2000 Ford Escort drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Escort might need 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 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. 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 2000 Ford Escort drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket 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.

  • How often should I come in for Ford Escort differential service? Differential service frequency varies from car to car. Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician.
