1987 Pontiac Firebird Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1987 Pontiac Firebird

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 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 1987 Pontiac Firebird, you help maintain your vehicle's 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 Firebird 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1987 Pontiac Firebird drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Firebird might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." 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 Firebird doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1987 Pontiac Firebird drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
