1985 Porsche 911 Drivetrain Repair

All About 1985 Porsche 911 Drivetrain Service

Your 911 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Porsche, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your 911 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1985 Porsche 911, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Porsche's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are Porsche 911 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 1985 Porsche 911 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Porsche 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 hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Porsche 911 drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1985 Porsche 911 drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
