2014 Kia Sportage Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2014 Kia Sportage

Your Sportage’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Kia, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2014 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.

When to Get Kia Sportage Drivetrain Repairs

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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2014 Kia Sportage drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Kia Sportage may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, 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. 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.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2014 Kia Sportage? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
