The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your K1500's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your GMC, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your K1500’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 K1500, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following GMC's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
