1990 Pontiac Firebird Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1990 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 one of your Firebird’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1990 Pontiac Firebird, 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.

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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1990 Pontiac Firebird drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Pontiac Firebird may need driveshaft attention if you feel 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." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. 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 1990 Pontiac Firebird drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
