1990 Pontiac Sunbird Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1990 Pontiac Sunbird

Your Sunbird drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the 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: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1990 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1990 Pontiac Sunbird drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Pontiac Sunbird 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. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Pontiac Sunbird drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1990 Pontiac Sunbird drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
