1996 Saturn SW1 Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1996 Saturn SW1

Your SW1’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the 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 SW1 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1996 Saturn SW1 to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Saturn's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Saturn SW1 Drivetrain Repairs

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.

Your Saturn SW1 may need driveshaft attention if you feel 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. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate.

How much does it cost to fix your 1996 Saturn SW1 drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
