What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 GMC C3500

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your C3500's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your GMC, 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 tune into you 1989 GMC C3500 drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to GMC's recommendations.
