Your 911’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Porsche, from back to front. It’s one of your 911’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1989 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.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1989 Porsche 911 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Porsche could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice 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 Porsche 911 doesn’t drive like it used to.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1989 Porsche 911? 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.
