What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1990 GMC R3500

Your R3500’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 R3500 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1990 GMC R3500 to maintain its performance power. Follow GMC's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are GMC R3500 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1990 GMC R3500 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your GMC R3500 may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your GMC R3500 doesn’t drive like it used to.
