1996 Pontiac Sunfire Drivetrain Service

1996 Pontiac Sunfire Drivetrain Service

Your Sunfire 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: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 Pontiac Sunfire, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Pontiac's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Pontiac Sunfire Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1996 Pontiac Sunfire drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Pontiac could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate.
