1997 Honda Prelude Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1997 Honda Prelude

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 one of the most complex systems in your Prelude and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1997 Honda Prelude to maintain its performance power. Follow Honda's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

Honda Prelude 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1997 Honda Prelude drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Honda Prelude may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Honda Prelude doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1997 Honda Prelude drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
