1998 Mercury Mountaineer Drivetrain Service

Your Mountaineer’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your Mountaineer and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1998 Mercury Mountaineer to maintain its performance 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 Mountaineer Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1998 Mercury Mountaineer drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Mercury 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 parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Mercury Mountaineer drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1998 Mercury Mountaineer? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
