1985 GMC K3500 Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1985 GMC K3500 Drivetrain Service

Your K3500 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your GMC, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1985 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.
