The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Sonata's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Hyundai, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Sonata’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1997 Hyundai Sonata, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Hyundai's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
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 help repair all of your 1997 Hyundai Sonata drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Sonata might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Hyundai Sonata doesn’t drive like it used to.
How much does it cost to fix your 1997 Hyundai Sonata drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
