The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Firenza'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 Firenza and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you tune into you 1986 Oldsmobile Firenza drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. You can minimize repairs by following Oldsmobile's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
