2008 Ford Expedition Drivetrain Service

All About 2008 Ford Expedition Drivetrain Service

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 one of your Expedition’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2008 Ford Expedition, you help maintain your vehicle's 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 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 help repair all of your 2008 Ford Expedition drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Expedition 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." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. 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 2008 Ford Expedition? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
