2004 Subaru Outback Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2004 Subaru Outback

Your Outback’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Subaru, from back to front. It’s one of your Outback’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2004 Subaru Outback to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Subaru's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Subaru Outback 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 take care of most 2004 Subaru Outback drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Subaru could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice 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 pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Subaru Outback.

How much does it cost to fix your 2004 Subaru Outback drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
