Your Vanagon drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Volkswagen, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Vanagon’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1983 Volkswagen Vanagon to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Volkswagen's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
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 1983 Volkswagen Vanagon drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Vanagon might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Volkswagen Vanagon doesn’t drive like it used to.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1983 Volkswagen Vanagon?
