1996 BMW 318is Drivetrain Service

1996 BMW 318is Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 318is's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 BMW 318is, you help maintain your vehicle's 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 318is 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1996 BMW 318is drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your BMW 318is may need driveshaft attention if you feel resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. 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 1996 BMW 318is drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
