What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1986 GMC Jimmy

Your Jimmy’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. 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 1986 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.

GMC Jimmy 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1986 GMC Jimmy drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your GMC Jimmy may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. 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. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your GMC Jimmy doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1986 GMC Jimmy? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
