Follow Chevrolet's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Chevrolet Blazer 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Your Blazer might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards.

How much does it cost to fix your 1987 Chevrolet Blazer drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
