1989 Volvo 780 Drivetrain Repair & Service

1989 Volvo 780 Drivetrain Service

Your 780 drivetrain transfers power from your 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 780 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1989 Volvo 780, 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 780 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1989 Volvo 780 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your 780 might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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." 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 780.

How much does it cost to fix your 1989 Volvo 780 drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
