1989 Honda Civic Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 Honda Civic

Your Civic drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Honda, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Civic and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1989 Honda Civic, 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 Honda's recommendations.

Honda Civic 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1989 Honda Civic drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Honda 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. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Honda Civic.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1989 Honda Civic? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
