All About 1984 GMC G3500 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your G3500's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your GMC, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your G3500’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1984 GMC G3500 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.

What Are GMC G3500 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1984 GMC G3500 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your G3500 might need driveshaft repair if you notice 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. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your GMC G3500.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1984 GMC G3500? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
