1994 BMW 318i Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1994 BMW 318i

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 318i's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 318i’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1994 BMW 318i, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow BMW's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are BMW 318i Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1994 BMW 318i drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your BMW 318i may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your BMW 318i doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1994 BMW 318i drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
