1997 Saturn SL1 Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1997 Saturn SL1 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your SL1's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Saturn, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your SL1 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1997 Saturn SL1, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Saturn's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
