2003 GMC Safari Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2003 GMC Safari

Your Safari’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your GMC, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Safari’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2003 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.
