1989 Volkswagen Vanagon Drivetrain Repair

1989 Volkswagen Vanagon Drivetrain Service

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 the most complex systems in your Vanagon and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1989 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1989 Volkswagen Vanagon drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Volkswagen could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Volkswagen Vanagon drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1989 Volkswagen Vanagon? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
