1986 Pontiac Sunbird Drivetrain Repair

1986 Pontiac Sunbird Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Sunbird's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Pontiac, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Sunbird and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 Pontiac Sunbird, 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.
