2008 Jeep Patriot Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2008 Jeep Patriot

Your Patriot drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the 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. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2008 Jeep Patriot, 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 Patriot Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2008 Jeep Patriot drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Jeep could be crying out for 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 parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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 Patriot doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2008 Jeep Patriot? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
