What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1986 GMC G1500

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your G1500's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your G1500 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 GMC G1500, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to GMC's recommendations.

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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1986 GMC G1500 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your GMC G1500 may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your GMC G1500 drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1986 GMC G1500? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
