1984 Jeep CJ7 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1984 Jeep CJ7

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your CJ7's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Jeep, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your CJ7 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1984 Jeep CJ7, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Jeep's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

Jeep CJ7 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1984 Jeep CJ7 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Jeep CJ7 may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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 CJ7.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1984 Jeep CJ7? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
