The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Cherokee's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Jeep, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Cherokee’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1983 Jeep Cherokee, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Jeep'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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1983 Jeep Cherokee drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Jeep could be crying out for 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. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Jeep Cherokee.
How much does it cost to fix your 1983 Jeep Cherokee drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
