1988 Porsche 911 Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1988 Porsche 911

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 911's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 911’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1988 Porsche 911 to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Porsche's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Porsche 911 Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1988 Porsche 911 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. 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 difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. 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 Porsche 911 doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1988 Porsche 911 drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
