1998 Hyundai Elantra Drivetrain Service

1998 Hyundai Elantra Drivetrain Service

Your Elantra drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Hyundai, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Elantra’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 Hyundai Elantra, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Hyundai's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Hyundai Elantra 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 take care of most 1998 Hyundai Elantra drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Elantra might need 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. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Hyundai Elantra.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1998 Hyundai Elantra? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.

  • Can Hyundai service save me money? Servicing the drivetrain system can help you save money by saving other parts of your vehicle. A bad drivetrain can put undue stress on other vehicle parts and lead to premature wear and tear.
  • How do I know if my Hyundai drivetrain is damaged? Your Hyundai Elantra drivetrain might be damaged if you notice strange noises from the rear of your vehicle, see fluid leaking, or have issues turning.
  • When should I come in for Hyundai Elantra differential service? Differential service frequency varies from car to car. Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. We generally 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.
