2002 Pontiac Aztek Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2002 Pontiac Aztek

Your Aztek drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Pontiac, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your Aztek and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2002 Pontiac Aztek, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Pontiac's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Pontiac Aztek 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2002 Pontiac Aztek drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Aztek might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Pontiac Aztek.

How much does it cost to fix your 2002 Pontiac Aztek drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
