1996 Pontiac Trans Sport Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport

Your Trans Sport’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your Trans Sport and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport, 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 Trans Sport 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Trans Sport might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning.
