1998 Saturn SL1 Drivetrain Service

All About 1998 Saturn SL1 Drivetrain Service

Your SL1 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the 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 SL1 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1998 Saturn SL1 to maintain its performance power. Follow Saturn's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Saturn SL1 Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1998 Saturn SL1 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your SL1 might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Saturn SL1.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1998 Saturn SL1? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.

  • How often will I need Saturn SL1 differential service? Differential service frequency varies from car to car. Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician.
