1989 Honda Prelude Drivetrain Service

All About 1989 Honda Prelude Drivetrain Service

Your Prelude’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: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1989 Honda Prelude, 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.

Honda Prelude 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1989 Honda Prelude drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Honda could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. 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 Prelude.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1989 Honda Prelude? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
