1997 Pontiac Sunfire Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1997 Pontiac Sunfire Drivetrain Service

Your Sunfire’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Pontiac, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your Sunfire and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1997 Pontiac Sunfire, 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.

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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1997 Pontiac Sunfire drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Sunfire might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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 Sunfire.

How much does it cost to fix your 1997 Pontiac Sunfire drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
