1988 Volkswagen Jetta Drivetrain Repair & Service

1988 Volkswagen Jetta Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Jetta's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Volkswagen, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Jetta and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1988 Volkswagen Jetta, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Volkswagen's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are Volkswagen Jetta 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1988 Volkswagen Jetta drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Volkswagen Jetta may need driveshaft attention if you feel resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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 Volkswagen Jetta.

How much does it cost to fix your 1988 Volkswagen Jetta drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
