All About 1996 Oldsmobile 88 Drivetrain Service

Your 88 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Oldsmobile, from back to front. 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 1996 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.

Oldsmobile 88 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1996 Oldsmobile 88 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your 88 might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. 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. 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.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1996 Oldsmobile 88? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
