1996 Saab 900 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1996 Saab 900

Your 900 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your 900 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 Saab 900, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Saab's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Saab 900 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1996 Saab 900 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your 900 might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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 Saab 900 doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1996 Saab 900? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.

  • How does Saab drivetrain maintenance help save money? Servicing the drivetrain system can help you save money by saving other parts of your vehicle. A bad drivetrain can put undue stress on other vehicle parts and lead to premature wear and tear.
  • What are signs my Saab drivetrain is damaged? Noises toward the back of your Saab 900, leaking fluid, trouble turning — these could all be signs of drivetrain damage you want to address. Take action before something more severe happens.
  • When should I come in for Saab 900 differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car. At a minimum, we recommend getting your differential inspected and the differential fluid changed as a part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine since your vehicle cannot function without a differential.
