1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Drivetrain Repair & Service

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Grand Cherokee's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Jeep, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1996 Jeep Grand 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.

What Are Jeep Grand Cherokee 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Jeep Grand Cherokee may need driveshaft attention if you feel 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 parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Jeep Grand Cherokee drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
