1996 Oldsmobile Achieva Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Achieva's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Oldsmobile, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Oldsmobile's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
