1987 Volkswagen Vanagon Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Vanagon's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. 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 maintain the drivetrain in your 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon, 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.

What Are Volkswagen Vanagon 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Volkswagen could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. 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 Vanagon.

How much does it cost to fix your 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
