1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Cutlass Ciera's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Oldsmobile, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your Cutlass Ciera and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera to maintain its performance power. Follow Oldsmobile's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera 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.

Your Oldsmobile could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates.
