All About 1998 GMC Safari Drivetrain Service

Your Safari 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 the most complex systems in your Safari and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 GMC Safari, 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.
