1998 GMC K1500 Suburban Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1998 GMC K1500 Suburban

Your K1500 Suburban’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: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 GMC K1500 Suburban, 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.
