Your Spectra drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Kia, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Spectra’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2003 Kia Spectra, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Kia's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2003 Kia Spectra drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Kia Spectra may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Kia Spectra.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2003 Kia Spectra? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
