All About 1983 GMC K3500 Drivetrain Service

Your K3500’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your GMC, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your K3500 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1983 GMC K3500 to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to GMC's recommendations.
