2004 BMW 330i Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2004 BMW 330i

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 330i'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 330i and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2004 BMW 330i, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow BMW's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate.
