1986 Pontiac Bonneville Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1986 Pontiac Bonneville

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Bonneville's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Pontiac, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Bonneville and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1986 Pontiac Bonneville to maintain its performance power. Follow Pontiac's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1986 Pontiac Bonneville drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Pontiac could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." 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 Bonneville.

How much does it cost to fix your 1986 Pontiac Bonneville drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
