1984 GMC C3500 Drivetrain Repair

All About 1984 GMC C3500 Drivetrain Service

Your C3500 drivetrain transfers power from your 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: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1984 GMC C3500, 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.

When to Get GMC C3500 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1984 GMC C3500 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your GMC C3500 may need driveshaft attention if you feel 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. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your GMC C3500 doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1984 GMC C3500 drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
