2009 Pontiac G8 Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2009 Pontiac G8

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your G8's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Pontiac, from back to front. It’s one of your G8’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2009 Pontiac G8, 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.

What Are Pontiac G8 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2009 Pontiac G8 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. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2009 Pontiac G8? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable.
