1987 Mercedes-Benz 300TD Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300TD

Your 300TD drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the 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: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you tune into you 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300TD drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. Follow Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

Mercedes-Benz 300TD 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1987 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 heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Mercedes-Benz 300TD drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300TD? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
