1994 Volkswagen Passat Drivetrain Repair & Service

1994 Volkswagen Passat Drivetrain Service

Your Passat’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your Passat and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1994 Volkswagen Passat, 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.

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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1994 Volkswagen Passat 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 hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Volkswagen Passat doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1994 Volkswagen Passat? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
