What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1985 Jeep Cherokee

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Cherokee's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Jeep, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Cherokee and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you tune into you 1985 Jeep Cherokee drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Jeep's recommendations.

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Your Cherokee might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date.

Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
