All About 2002 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 one of your Escort’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2002 Ford Escort to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Ford's recommendations.

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 2002 Ford Escort drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. 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." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Ford Escort doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 2002 Ford Escort drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
