1988 Pontiac Firebird Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1988 Pontiac Firebird

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Firebird's engine to its 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: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1988 Pontiac Firebird to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Pontiac's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1988 Pontiac Firebird drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. 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." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. 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 Firebird.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1988 Pontiac Firebird? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
