All About 1990 GMC C3500 Drivetrain Service

Your C3500 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the 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: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1990 GMC C3500, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow GMC's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get GMC C3500 Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1990 GMC C3500 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your GMC 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 difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. 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.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1990 GMC C3500? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
