All About 1993 GMC K3500 Drivetrain Service

Your K3500 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your GMC, from the axles to the transmission.

When you tune into you 1993 GMC K3500 drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. Follow GMC's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
