1987 Pontiac T1000 Drivetrain Service

All About 1987 Pontiac T1000 Drivetrain Service

Your T1000’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 your T1000’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1987 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.

When to Get Pontiac T1000 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 1987 Pontiac T1000 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your T1000 might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. 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 T1000.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1987 Pontiac T1000? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
