1998 Chevrolet C3500 Drivetrain Repair & Service

1998 Chevrolet C3500 Drivetrain Service

Your C3500’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 C3500 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 Chevrolet C3500, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Chevrolet's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
