2004 Porsche 911 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2004 Porsche 911

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 911's engine to its 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: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2004 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.

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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2004 Porsche 911 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Porsche could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. 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 2004 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, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
