1986 Jeep Cherokee Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1986 Jeep Cherokee

Your Cherokee drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. 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 1986 Jeep Cherokee, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Jeep's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are Jeep Cherokee Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1986 Jeep Cherokee drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Jeep Cherokee may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for 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 1986 Jeep Cherokee drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
