1996 Saturn SL2 Drivetrain Service

All About 1996 Saturn SL2 Drivetrain Service

Your SL2’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the 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: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 Saturn SL2, 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.

Saturn SL2 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1996 Saturn SL2 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your SL2 might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Saturn SL2 doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1996 Saturn SL2 drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
