Your 1500’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Ram, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your 1500 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2018 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2018 Ram 1500 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. 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. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. 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.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2018 Ram 1500? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
