1985 Renault R18i Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1985 Renault R18i

Your R18i’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Renault, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your R18i and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1985 Renault R18i, 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 Renault's recommendations.

When to Get Renault R18i 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 take care of most 1985 Renault R18i drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Renault 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 parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Renault R18i.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1985 Renault R18i drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
