1985 Jeep J20 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1985 Jeep J20

Your J20 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Jeep, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your J20’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1985 Jeep J20, 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.

What Are Jeep J20 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1985 Jeep J20 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your J20 might need 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. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Jeep J20 drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 1985 Jeep J20 drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
