2004 GMC Safari Drivetrain Repair & Service

2004 GMC Safari Drivetrain Service

Your Safari drivetrain transfers power from your 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: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2004 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

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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2004 GMC Safari drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your GMC Safari may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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 Safari drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 2004 GMC Safari drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
