2016 Jeep Compass Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2016 Jeep Compass

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Compass's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Jeep, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Compass’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2016 Jeep Compass to maintain its performance power. Follow Jeep's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Jeep Compass 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 take care of most 2016 Jeep Compass drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Compass might need 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. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Jeep Compass drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2016 Jeep Compass? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.

  • How does Jeep drivetrain maintenance help save money? Yes. Servicing the drivetrain system can help you avoid more significant repairs. A bad drivetrain can put more stress on other vehicle components.

These could all be signs of drivetrain damage you don't want to ignore. Take action quickly to catch repairs or replacements before something more severe happens.
  • How often should I come in for Jeep Compass differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car.
