1986 BMW 325 Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1986 BMW 325

Your 325 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your 325 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 BMW 325, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following BMW's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are BMW 325 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1986 BMW 325 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your BMW 325 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. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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 325 drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 1986 BMW 325 drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
