2006 Ford Expedition Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2006 Ford Expedition

Your Expedition’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the 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: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2006 Ford Expedition, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Ford's recommendations.

What Are Ford Expedition Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2006 Ford Expedition drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Ford could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Ford Expedition drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 2006 Ford Expedition drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
