2011 Ram Dakota Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2011 Ram Dakota

Your Dakota drivetrain transfers power from your 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 Dakota and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2011 Ram Dakota to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Ram's recommendations.

When to Get Ram Dakota 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2011 Ram Dakota drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Ram could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. 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 Dakota doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2011 Ram Dakota? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
