1986 Porsche 928 Drivetrain Repair & Service

1986 Porsche 928 Drivetrain Service

Your 928’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 the most complex systems in your 928 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 Porsche 928, 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 928 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1986 Porsche 928 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Porsche 928 may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. 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 928 doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1986 Porsche 928 drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
