2017 BMW 340i Drivetrain Service

2017 BMW 340i Drivetrain Service

Your 340i 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 the most complex systems in your 340i and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2017 BMW 340i to maintain its performance power. Follow BMW's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

BMW 340i 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 2017 BMW 340i drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your BMW could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your BMW 340i doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2017 BMW 340i? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
