1998 Pontiac Sunfire Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1998 Pontiac Sunfire

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Sunfire's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your Sunfire and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1998 Pontiac Sunfire to maintain its performance 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 Sunfire 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 take care of most 1998 Pontiac Sunfire drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Pontiac Sunfire may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Pontiac Sunfire doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1998 Pontiac Sunfire? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
