1987 Subaru GL-10 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1987 Subaru GL-10

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your GL-10's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your GL-10 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1987 Subaru GL-10 to maintain its performance power. Follow Subaru's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Subaru GL-10 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1987 Subaru GL-10 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Subaru GL-10 may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Subaru GL-10 doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1987 Subaru GL-10 drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
