The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 300TD's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 300TD’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300TD, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Mercedes-Benz's recommendations.
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 fix many 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300TD drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Mercedes-Benz 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 hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. 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 Mercedes-Benz 300TD.
How much does it cost to fix your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300TD drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket 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.
