What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your C1500 Suburban's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your GMC, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following GMC's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

GMC C1500 Suburban Drivetrain Repairs

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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your C1500 Suburban might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, 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. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your GMC C1500 Suburban doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
