1987 Porsche 944 Drivetrain Repair

1987 Porsche 944 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 944's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Porsche, from back to front. It’s one of your 944’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1987 Porsche 944 to maintain its performance power. Follow Porsche's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
