1988 Jeep Wrangler Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1988 Jeep Wrangler

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Wrangler's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Jeep, from back to front. It’s one of your Wrangler’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1988 Jeep Wrangler, 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.

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 fix many 1988 Jeep Wrangler drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Jeep could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Jeep Wrangler drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1988 Jeep Wrangler drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
