2009 Honda Ridgeline Drivetrain Service

All About 2009 Honda Ridgeline Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Ridgeline's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Honda, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your Ridgeline and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2009 Honda Ridgeline, 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 Ridgeline 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 help repair all of your 2009 Honda Ridgeline drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Honda Ridgeline may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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 Ridgeline doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2009 Honda Ridgeline? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.

These could all be signs of drivetrain damage you don't want to ignore. Take action quickly to catch repairs or replacements before something more severe happens.
  • How often will I need Honda Ridgeline differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car. At a minimum, we recommend getting your differential inspected and the differential fluid changed as a part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine since your vehicle cannot function without a differential.
