2004 GMC Savana 1500 Drivetrain Repair

All About 2004 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 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. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2004 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.

GMC Savana 1500 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2004 GMC Savana 1500 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your GMC Savana 1500 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. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your GMC Savana 1500 doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 2004 GMC Savana 1500 drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
