1983 Jeep CJ5 Drivetrain Service

1983 Jeep CJ5 Drivetrain Service

Your CJ5 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Jeep, from back to front. It’s one of your CJ5’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1983 Jeep CJ5, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Jeep's recommendations.

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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1983 Jeep CJ5 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Jeep could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice 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. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1983 Jeep CJ5 drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends!

But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
