1991 GMC K1500 Drivetrain Repair & Service

1991 GMC K1500 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your K1500's engine to its 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 1991 GMC K1500, 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.
