1984 Volvo 242 Drivetrain Service

All About 1984 Volvo 242 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 242's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Volvo, from back to front. It’s one of your 242’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1984 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.

Volvo 242 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Your Volvo 242 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 pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Volvo 242 drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 1984 Volvo 242 drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
