1995 BMW 318i Drivetrain Service

1995 BMW 318i Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 318i's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your BMW, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1995 BMW 318i to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to BMW's recommendations.

When to Get BMW 318i Drivetrain Repairs

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 1995 BMW 318i drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. 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 parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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 1995 BMW 318i drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
