What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1986 GMC Safari

Your Safari 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 the most complex systems in your Safari and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1986 GMC Safari 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.

When to Get 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1986 GMC Safari drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your GMC Safari may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your GMC Safari.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1986 GMC Safari? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.

  • When should I come in for GMC Safari differential service? Differential service frequency varies from car to car. Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician.
