1996 Saturn SC1 Drivetrain Repair

1996 Saturn SC1 Drivetrain Service

Your SC1 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Saturn, from back to front. It’s one of your SC1’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 Saturn SC1, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Saturn's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Saturn SC1 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 1996 Saturn SC1 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your SC1 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. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Saturn SC1 doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1996 Saturn SC1 drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
