1983 Honda Civic Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1983 Honda Civic Drivetrain Service

Your Civic drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. 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 1983 Honda Civic, 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.
