1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 190E's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 190E’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Mercedes-Benz 190E Drivetrain Repairs

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 1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Mercedes-Benz 190E 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 difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Mercedes-Benz 190E.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
