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 your Jetta’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1997 Volkswagen Jetta, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Volkswagen's recommendations.
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 take care of most 1997 Volkswagen Jetta drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Volkswagen Jetta may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Volkswagen Jetta drives.
Is normal to wonder whether or not 1997 Volkswagen Jetta drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
