1997 Jeep Cherokee Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1997 Jeep Cherokee Drivetrain Service

Your Cherokee’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Jeep, from back to front. It’s one of your Cherokee’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1997 Jeep Cherokee to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Jeep's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Jeep Cherokee Drivetrain Repairs

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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1997 Jeep Cherokee drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Jeep could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, 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. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. 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 1997 Jeep Cherokee drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
