1988 Pontiac Grand Am Drivetrain Repair

1988 Pontiac Grand Am Drivetrain Service

Your Grand Am’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Pontiac, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Grand Am and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1988 Pontiac Grand Am, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Pontiac's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
