1997 Pontiac Bonneville Drivetrain Repair

1997 Pontiac Bonneville Drivetrain Service

Your Bonneville drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Pontiac, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1997 Pontiac Bonneville, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Pontiac's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1997 Pontiac Bonneville drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Bonneville might need 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. 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 Pontiac Bonneville doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1997 Pontiac Bonneville? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
