Your 850’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your 850 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1997 Volvo 850 to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Volvo's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1997 Volvo 850 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. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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 850.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1997 Volvo 850? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
