1997 Land Rover Defender 90 Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1997 Land Rover Defender 90

Your Defender 90 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Land Rover, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your Defender 90 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1997 Land Rover Defender 90, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Land Rover's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

  • Can Land Rover service save me money? Servicing the drivetrain system can help you save money by saving other parts of your vehicle. A bad drivetrain can put undue stress on other vehicle parts and lead to premature wear and tear.
  • How do I know if my Land Rover drivetrain is damaged? Noises toward the back of your Land Rover Defender 90, leaking fluid, trouble turning — these could all be signs of drivetrain damage you want to address. Take action before something more severe happens.
  • How often should I come in for Land Rover Defender 90 differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car. At a minimum, we recommend getting your differential inspected and the differential fluid changed as a part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine since your vehicle cannot function without a differential.
