All About 1996 GMC Savana 1500 Drivetrain Service

Your Savana 1500’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 one of the most complex systems in your Savana 1500 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1996 GMC Savana 1500 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.
