1996 Honda Accord Drivetrain Repair & Service

1996 Honda Accord Drivetrain Service

Your Accord’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Honda, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 Honda Accord, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Honda's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Honda Accord 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1996 Honda Accord drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Honda could be crying out for 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 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 Honda Accord doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1996 Honda Accord drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
