1998 Jeep Wrangler Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1998 Jeep Wrangler

Your Wrangler drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the 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. Care for your 1998 Jeep Wrangler to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Jeep's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Jeep Wrangler Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1998 Jeep Wrangler drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Jeep could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. 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 1998 Jeep Wrangler drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
