Your Cherokee’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Jeep, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1988 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.
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. We can fix many 1988 Jeep Cherokee drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Jeep Cherokee may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. 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.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1988 Jeep Cherokee? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
