1988 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Drivetrain Service

Your Custom Cruiser’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Oldsmobile, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Custom Cruiser’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1988 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, 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.
