1988 Pontiac LeMans Drivetrain Repair

1988 Pontiac LeMans Drivetrain Service

Your LeMans’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the 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 LeMans and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1988 Pontiac LeMans, 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.
