1987 GMC S15 Jimmy Drivetrain Repair & Service

1987 GMC S15 Jimmy Drivetrain Service

Your S15 Jimmy drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1987 GMC S15 Jimmy, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to GMC's recommendations.

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1987 GMC S15 Jimmy drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your GMC S15 Jimmy may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages.

How much does it cost to fix your 1987 GMC S15 Jimmy drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
