The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Mark VIII's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Lincoln's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Mark VIII might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Lincoln Mark VIII drives.
How much does it cost to fix your 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, 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.
