1989 GMC G3500 Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 GMC G3500

Your G3500 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your GMC, from back to front. 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 G3500, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow GMC's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

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 help repair all of your 1989 GMC G3500 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your GMC could be crying out for 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 pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your GMC G3500 doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1989 GMC G3500 drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
