1988 Pontiac Bonneville Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1988 Pontiac Bonneville

Your Bonneville drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1988 Pontiac Bonneville to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Pontiac's recommendations.

When to Get Pontiac Bonneville 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1988 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. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Pontiac Bonneville drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1988 Pontiac Bonneville drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
