1998 GMC Jimmy Drivetrain Service

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 one of the most complex systems in your Jimmy and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 GMC Jimmy, 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.

What Are 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Your Jimmy might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1998 GMC Jimmy? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
