1988 GMC K3500 Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1988 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: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1988 GMC K3500, 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.
