1986 Volvo 244 Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1986 Volvo 244

Your 244’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Volvo, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your 244’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1986 Volvo 244 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.

When to Get Volvo 244 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. We can help repair all of your 1986 Volvo 244 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Volvo could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." 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 244.

How much does it cost to fix your 1986 Volvo 244 drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
