What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1988 GMC S15

Your S15’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 a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1988 GMC S15 to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to GMC's recommendations.
