What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2018 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 the most complex systems in your Wrangler and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you tune into you 2018 Jeep Wrangler drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. Follow Jeep's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

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.

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. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages.
