1989 Pontiac Firebird Drivetrain Repair & Service

1989 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 your Firebird’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1989 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.
