1997 Volkswagen Golf Drivetrain Service

All About 1997 Volkswagen Golf Drivetrain Service

Your Golf’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your Golf’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1997 Volkswagen Golf to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Volkswagen's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Volkswagen Golf Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1997 Volkswagen Golf drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Volkswagen 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. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. 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 Volkswagen Golf doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1997 Volkswagen Golf drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket 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.
