1986 Pontiac T1000 Drivetrain Service

All About 1986 Pontiac T1000 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your T1000's engine to its 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 1986 Pontiac T1000, 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.

Pontiac T1000 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 1986 Pontiac T1000 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Pontiac could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, 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. 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 T1000 doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1986 Pontiac T1000 drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
