What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1997 GMC K1500

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.

When you tune into you 1997 GMC K1500 drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to GMC's recommendations.
