All About 1997 Lexus LS400 Drivetrain Service

Your LS400’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Lexus, from back to front. It’s one of your LS400’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1997 Lexus LS400 to maintain its performance power. Follow Lexus's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Lexus LS400 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 fix many 1997 Lexus LS400 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your LS400 might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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 Lexus LS400.

How much does it cost to fix your 1997 Lexus LS400 drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
