2018 BMW 340i Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 2018 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 your 340i’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2018 BMW 340i, 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.

When to Get 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 2018 BMW 340i drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your BMW 340i 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. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. 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 2018 BMW 340i? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
