What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 GMC G1500

Your G1500 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 a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1989 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.
