2003 Ford Expedition Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2003 Ford Expedition

Your Expedition’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Ford, from back to front. 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 2003 Ford Expedition 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 Expedition 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2003 Ford Expedition drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Ford could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Ford Expedition doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2003 Ford Expedition? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
