1988 Porsche 924 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1988 Porsche 924

Your 924’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Porsche, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your 924 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1988 Porsche 924, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Porsche's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Porsche 924 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 help repair all of your 1988 Porsche 924 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Porsche 924 may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. 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. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Porsche 924.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1988 Porsche 924? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.

Questions About 1988 Porsche 924

  • How does Porsche drivetrain maintenance help save money? Yes, sometimes it can. First, servicing the drivetrain system can help you avoid more significant repairs. It can also somewhat reduce tire wear.
  • How do I know if my Porsche drivetrain is damaged? Noises toward the back of your Porsche 924, leaking fluid, trouble turning — these could all be signs of drivetrain damage you want to address. Take action before something more severe happens.
  • How often should I come in for Porsche 924 differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car. At a minimum, we recommend getting your differential inspected and the differential fluid changed as a part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine since your vehicle cannot function without a differential.
