All About 1986 GMC K1500 Drivetrain Service

Your K1500 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the 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. Care for your 1986 GMC K1500 to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following GMC's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get GMC K1500 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1986 GMC K1500 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your K1500 might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your GMC K1500 doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1986 GMC K1500 drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
