1984 Volvo 245 Drivetrain Repair

1984 Volvo 245 Drivetrain Service

Your 245’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 the most complex systems in your 245 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1984 Volvo 245 to maintain its performance power. Follow Volvo's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Volvo 245 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1984 Volvo 245 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. 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 parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. 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 245.

How much does it cost to fix your 1984 Volvo 245 drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
