1987 Volvo 245 Drivetrain Repair

1987 Volvo 245 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 245's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Volvo, from back to front. It’s one of your 245’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1987 Volvo 245, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Volvo's recommendations.

What Are 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 take care of most 1987 Volvo 245 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Volvo could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, 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 245.

How much does it cost to fix your 1987 Volvo 245 drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
