1996 Honda Civic Drivetrain Repair

1996 Honda Civic Drivetrain Service

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: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 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.

When to Get Honda Civic 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 fix many 1996 Honda Civic drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. 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 hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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 Honda Civic doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1996 Honda Civic drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
