1989 Pontiac Grand Am Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 Pontiac Grand Am

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Grand Am's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Pontiac, from the axles to the transmission. 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 1989 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.

Pontiac Grand Am 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1989 Pontiac Grand Am drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Pontiac could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Pontiac Grand Am doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1989 Pontiac Grand Am? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
