1991 BMW 318is Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1991 BMW 318is

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 318is's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your BMW, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your 318is and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1991 BMW 318is to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following BMW's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get BMW 318is Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1991 BMW 318is drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your BMW 318is may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your BMW 318is drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 1991 BMW 318is drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
