1999 Volkswagen Jetta Drivetrain Service

All About 1999 Volkswagen Jetta Drivetrain Service

Your Jetta’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the 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 1999 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.

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 take care of most 1999 Volkswagen Jetta drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Volkswagen could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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 Volkswagen Jetta.

How much does it cost to fix your 1999 Volkswagen Jetta drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
