1986 Lincoln Continental Drivetrain Service

All About 1986 Lincoln Continental Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Continental's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Lincoln, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1986 Lincoln Continental to maintain its performance power. Follow Lincoln's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Lincoln Continental 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1986 Lincoln Continental drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Lincoln Continental may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on 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. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Lincoln Continental.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1986 Lincoln Continental? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
