The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 5000's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Audi, from the axles to the transmission.

Care for your 1986 Audi 5000 to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Audi's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
