Your Sportage’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your Sportage’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2002 Kia Sportage, 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 take care of most 2002 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. 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 Sportage.
How much does it cost to fix your 2002 Kia Sportage drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
