The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Vanagon's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Volkswagen, from back to front. It’s one of your Vanagon’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you tune into you 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Volkswagen's recommendations.
