1997 Volvo 960 Drivetrain Service

1997 Volvo 960 Drivetrain Service

Your 960’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 a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1997 Volvo 960, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Volvo's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Volvo 960 Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1997 Volvo 960 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. 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. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Volvo 960 drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1997 Volvo 960? 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.
