1988 Subaru XT Drivetrain Service

1988 Subaru XT Drivetrain Service

Your XT drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Subaru, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1988 Subaru XT 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.

When to Get Subaru XT 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 fix many 1988 Subaru XT drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Subaru could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. 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.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1988 Subaru XT? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
