1997 BMW 528i Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1997 BMW 528i Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 528i's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your 528i and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1997 BMW 528i, 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.
