1986 Subaru Brat Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1986 Subaru Brat

Your Brat’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Subaru, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Brat’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 Subaru Brat, 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 Subaru's recommendations.

Subaru Brat 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. We can help repair all of your 1986 Subaru Brat drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Brat might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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 Subaru Brat doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1986 Subaru Brat drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
