1999 GMC C3500 Drivetrain Repair

All About 1999 GMC C3500 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your C3500's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your GMC, from back to front. It’s one of your C3500’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1999 GMC C3500 to maintain its performance power. Follow GMC's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are GMC C3500 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1999 GMC C3500 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your C3500 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. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your GMC C3500.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1999 GMC C3500? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
