What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1987 GMC Caballero

Your Caballero drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1987 GMC Caballero, 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.

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 1987 GMC Caballero drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your GMC Caballero may need driveshaft attention if you feel 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. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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 Caballero doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1987 GMC Caballero drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
