Your Sportage 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 the most complex systems in your Sportage and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2001 Kia Sportage, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Kia's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2001 Kia Sportage drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Kia could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. 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. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Kia Sportage doesn’t drive like it used to.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2001 Kia Sportage? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
