The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Impreza's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Subaru, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 Subaru Impreza, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Subaru's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
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 take care of most 1998 Subaru Impreza drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Subaru could be crying out for 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." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Subaru Impreza doesn’t drive like it used to.
Is normal to wonder whether or not 1998 Subaru Impreza drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
