1998 Jeep Cherokee Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1998 Jeep Cherokee Drivetrain Service

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 1998 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

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1998 Jeep Cherokee drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. 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. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1998 Jeep Cherokee? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
