2012 Ford Expedition Drivetrain Repair

All About 2012 Ford Expedition Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Expedition's engine to its 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: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2012 Ford Expedition 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 Expedition 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2012 Ford Expedition drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Ford Expedition may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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 Expedition drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 2012 Ford Expedition drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
