1986 Pontiac Firebird Drivetrain Service

All About 1986 Pontiac Firebird Drivetrain Service

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