1997 Jeep Wrangler Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1997 Jeep Wrangler

Your Wrangler 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 the most complex systems in your Wrangler and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1997 Jeep Wrangler, 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.

What Are Jeep Wrangler 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1997 Jeep Wrangler drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Wrangler 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 parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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 Wrangler drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 1997 Jeep Wrangler drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
