2018 Ram 2500 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2018 Ram 2500

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 2500's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your 2500 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2018 Ram 2500, 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 Ram's recommendations.

Ram 2500 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2018 Ram 2500 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Ram could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on 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 2500 doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 2018 Ram 2500 drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
