What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2008 Lexus GS460

Your GS460 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Lexus, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your GS460 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2008 Lexus GS460, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Lexus's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Lexus GS460 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2008 Lexus GS460 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Lexus 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 difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Lexus GS460 drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2008 Lexus GS460 drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
