The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your XT's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Subaru, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your XT and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 Subaru XT, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Subaru's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
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 fix many 1986 Subaru XT drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your XT 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 pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. 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 XT.
Is normal to wonder whether or not 1986 Subaru XT drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
