1985 BMW 528e Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1985 BMW 528e

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 528e's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 528e’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1985 BMW 528e, 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.

BMW 528e 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1985 BMW 528e drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your 528e might need driveshaft repair if you notice 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. 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 528e doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1985 BMW 528e? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
