Your 242 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Volvo, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1983 Volvo 242 to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Volvo's recommendations.
