1998 Hyundai Sonata Drivetrain Service

All About 1998 Hyundai Sonata Drivetrain Service

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 1998 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.

Hyundai Sonata 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 Sonata drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Hyundai Sonata may need driveshaft attention if you feel 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. 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Hyundai Sonata drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1998 Hyundai Sonata drivetrain repair is expensive. 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.
