What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1985 GMC G1500

Your G1500’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your GMC, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1985 GMC G1500 to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following GMC's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

GMC G1500 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1985 GMC G1500 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your GMC could be crying out for 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. 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 G1500 doesn’t drive like it used to.

Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
