2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Your Grand Cherokee’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Jeep, from back to front. It’s one of your Grand Cherokee’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee to maintain its performance power. Follow Jeep's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Jeep Grand Cherokee 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 fix many 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee 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. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Jeep Grand Cherokee doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
