1988 Volvo 244 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1988 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: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1988 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

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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1988 Volvo 244 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Volvo 244 may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. 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.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1988 Volvo 244 drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
