1989 GMC S15 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 GMC S15

Your S15 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your GMC, from back to front. It’s one of your S15’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1989 GMC S15, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow GMC's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1989 GMC S15 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your GMC could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your GMC S15 drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1989 GMC S15? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
