1991 Volvo 240 Drivetrain Service

All About 1991 Volvo 240 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 240's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your 240 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1991 Volvo 240, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Volvo's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Volvo 240 Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1991 Volvo 240 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Volvo 240 may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Volvo 240.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1991 Volvo 240? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
