1998 Audi A4 Drivetrain Repair

All About 1998 Audi A4 Drivetrain Service

Your A4’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Audi, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 Audi A4, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Audi's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date.
