The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 1500's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Ram, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Ram 1500, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Ram's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
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 fix many 2012 Ram 1500 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your 1500 might need driveshaft repair if you notice 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. 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 Ram 1500 doesn’t drive like it used to.
How much does it cost to fix your 2012 Ram 1500 drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
