1996 Saturn SL Drivetrain Repair

All About 1996 Saturn SL Drivetrain Service

Your SL drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Saturn, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 Saturn SL, 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 Saturn's recommendations.

What Are Saturn SL Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1996 Saturn SL drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Saturn 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. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Saturn SL drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 1996 Saturn SL drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
