2017 Porsche 911 Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2017 Porsche 911

Your 911 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Porsche, from the axles to the transmission. 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 2017 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.

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 2017 Porsche 911 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your 911 might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for 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.

How much does it cost to fix your 2017 Porsche 911 drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
