1986 Porsche 911 Drivetrain Service

1986 Porsche 911 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 911's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Porsche, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your 911 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 Porsche 911, 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 Porsche's recommendations.

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 1986 Porsche 911 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your 911 might need 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. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Porsche 911.
