1991 Volkswagen Passat Drivetrain Repair

1991 Volkswagen Passat Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Passat's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Volkswagen, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your Passat and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1991 Volkswagen Passat, 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.

When to Get Volkswagen Passat Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1991 Volkswagen Passat drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Passat might need 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. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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 Passat.

How much does it cost to fix your 1991 Volkswagen Passat drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.

  • When should I come in for Volkswagen Passat differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car. At a minimum, we recommend getting your differential inspected and the differential fluid changed as a part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine since your vehicle cannot function without a differential.
