The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 88's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 88’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1993 Oldsmobile 88, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Oldsmobile's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
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 help repair all of your 1993 Oldsmobile 88 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Oldsmobile 88 may need driveshaft attention if you feel resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, 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." 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 Oldsmobile 88 doesn’t drive like it used to.
How much does it cost to fix your 1993 Oldsmobile 88 drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, 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.
