1997 Oldsmobile Regency Drivetrain Repair & Service

1997 Oldsmobile Regency Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Regency's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Oldsmobile, from the axles to the transmission. 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 1997 Oldsmobile Regency, 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.
