The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 128i's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your BMW, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your 128i and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2009 BMW 128i, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following BMW's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
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 2009 BMW 128i drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your 128i might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your BMW 128i drives.
