1998 Pontiac Trans Sport Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Trans Sport's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Pontiac, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Pontiac Trans Sport may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. 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 Trans Sport doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
