1985 GMC Jimmy Drivetrain Service

All About 1985 GMC Jimmy Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Jimmy's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your GMC, from back to front. It’s one of your Jimmy’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1985 GMC Jimmy, 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.

What Are GMC Jimmy 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1985 GMC Jimmy drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Jimmy might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. 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 Jimmy drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1985 GMC Jimmy drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
