1996 Porsche 911 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1996 Porsche 911

Your 911’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the 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 1996 Porsche 911 to maintain its performance power. Follow Porsche's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Porsche 911 Drivetrain Repairs

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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1996 Porsche 911 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Porsche 911 may need driveshaft attention if you feel 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 pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. 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 1996 Porsche 911? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
