Your C3500’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Chevrolet, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your C3500 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1997 Chevrolet C3500, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Chevrolet's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
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 take care of most 1997 Chevrolet C3500 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Chevrolet C3500 may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." 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 Chevrolet C3500.
How much does it cost to fix your 1997 Chevrolet C3500 drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
