The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your SL's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Saturn, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your SL and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1997 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.
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 take care of most 1997 Saturn SL drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Saturn could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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 SL doesn’t drive like it used to.
Is normal to wonder whether or not 1997 Saturn SL drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
