1997 Audi A8 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your A8's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Audi, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your A8’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1997 Audi A8 to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Audi's recommendations.
