1998 Honda Civic Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1998 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 your Civic’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 Honda Civic, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Honda's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Honda Civic 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1998 Honda Civic drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. 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. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Honda Civic drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1998 Honda Civic drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
