1989 Pontiac Safari Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 Pontiac Safari

Your Safari drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Pontiac, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1989 Pontiac Safari, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Pontiac's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are Pontiac Safari Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1989 Pontiac Safari drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Pontiac Safari may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Pontiac Safari.

How much does it cost to fix your 1989 Pontiac Safari drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
