What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1986 GMC S15

Your S15 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your S15’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1986 GMC S15 to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following GMC's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

GMC S15 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 take care of most 1986 GMC S15 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your GMC S15 may need driveshaft attention if you feel resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on 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 S15 doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1986 GMC S15? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
