1985 GMC Safari Drivetrain Service

Your Safari’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 1985 GMC Safari 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.

What Are GMC Safari Drivetrain Repairs

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 take care of most 1985 GMC Safari drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Safari might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your GMC Safari drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1985 GMC Safari? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
