1983 Volvo 244 Drivetrain Repair

1983 Volvo 244 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 244'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 244 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1983 Volvo 244, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Volvo's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
