1983 GMC G3500 Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1983 GMC G3500 Drivetrain Service

Your G3500’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the 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: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1983 GMC G3500, 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.

When to Get GMC G3500 Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1983 GMC G3500 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your GMC G3500 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. 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your GMC G3500 drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1983 GMC G3500? 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.
