The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Spectra5's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Kia, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Spectra5’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2005 Kia Spectra5, 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 Kia's recommendations.
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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2005 Kia Spectra5 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Spectra5 might need 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 parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. 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 Spectra5.
How much does it cost to fix your 2005 Kia Spectra5 drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
