1986 Mercury Cougar Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Cougar's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Mercury, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 Mercury Cougar, 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 Mercury's recommendations.

When to Get Mercury Cougar 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 Mercury Cougar drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Cougar might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on 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. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Mercury Cougar doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1986 Mercury Cougar? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
