The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 340i GT xDrive'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 340i GT xDrive and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2017 BMW 340i GT xDrive, 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.
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 take care of most 2017 BMW 340i GT xDrive drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your BMW 340i GT xDrive may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. 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.
