1997 Pontiac Grand Am Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1997 Pontiac Grand Am

Your Grand Am’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. 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. Care for your 1997 Pontiac Grand Am to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Pontiac's recommendations.
