1990 Oldsmobile 98 Drivetrain Repair & Service

1990 Oldsmobile 98 Drivetrain Service

Your 98 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1990 Oldsmobile 98 to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Oldsmobile's recommendations.

How much does it cost to fix your 1990 Oldsmobile 98 drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
