All About 1998 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 length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 GMC Savana 1500, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following GMC's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
