1996 Jeep Cherokee Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1996 Jeep Cherokee

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 the most complex systems in your Cherokee and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1996 Jeep Cherokee to maintain its performance power. Follow Jeep's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1996 Jeep Cherokee drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Jeep could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. 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. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Jeep Cherokee doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1996 Jeep Cherokee? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
