1987 Jeep Wagoneer Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1987 Jeep Wagoneer Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Wagoneer's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Jeep, from back to front. It’s one of your Wagoneer’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1987 Jeep Wagoneer, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Jeep's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Jeep Wagoneer 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 take care of most 1987 Jeep Wagoneer drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Wagoneer might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. 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 Wagoneer doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1987 Jeep Wagoneer drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
