1988 Pontiac Sunbird Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1988 Pontiac Sunbird

Your Sunbird drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Pontiac, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Sunbird’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1988 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.

When to Get Pontiac Sunbird 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1988 Pontiac Sunbird drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Sunbird might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Pontiac Sunbird doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1988 Pontiac Sunbird drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
