1990 GMC G1500 Drivetrain Repair

1990 GMC G1500 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your G1500's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your GMC, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your G1500’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1990 GMC G1500 to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to GMC's recommendations.

GMC G1500 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1990 GMC G1500 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your GMC G1500 may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. 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. 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 1990 GMC G1500? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
