1987 BMW 528e Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1987 BMW 528e Drivetrain Service

Your 528e drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your BMW, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your 528e and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1987 BMW 528e, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following BMW's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are BMW 528e Drivetrain Repairs

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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1987 BMW 528e drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your 528e might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1987 BMW 528e? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
