1988 Peugeot 505 Drivetrain Repair

1988 Peugeot 505 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 505's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 505’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1988 Peugeot 505, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Peugeot's recommendations.

When to Get Peugeot 505 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. We can help repair all of your 1988 Peugeot 505 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Peugeot could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Peugeot 505 doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1988 Peugeot 505 drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
