1993 BMW 318is Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1993 BMW 318is

Your 318is drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your BMW, from back to front. It’s one of your 318is’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1993 BMW 318is to maintain its performance power. Follow BMW's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
