1984 Oldsmobile 98 Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1984 Oldsmobile 98 Drivetrain Service

Your 98 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Oldsmobile, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your 98’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1984 Oldsmobile 98 to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Oldsmobile's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Oldsmobile 98 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1984 Oldsmobile 98 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your 98 might need 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. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Oldsmobile 98 doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1984 Oldsmobile 98? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
