1987 Volvo 740 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1987 Volvo 740

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 740's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Volvo, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your 740 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1987 Volvo 740 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.

Volvo 740 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 1987 Volvo 740 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Volvo could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice 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 pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Volvo 740 drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1987 Volvo 740? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
