1986 Jeep J20 Drivetrain Service

Your J20’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 Jeep J20, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Jeep's recommendations.

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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1986 Jeep J20 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your J20 might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, 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 J20 doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1986 Jeep J20? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
