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: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 Volkswagen Jetta, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Volkswagen's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
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 help repair all of your 1998 Volkswagen Jetta drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Volkswagen could be crying out for 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." 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.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1998 Volkswagen Jetta? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
