What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1986 GMC K2500

Your K2500 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your GMC, from back to front. It’s one of your K2500’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 GMC K2500, 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.

You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1986 GMC K2500 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your K2500 might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style.
