2004 Mazda 3 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 3's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Mazda, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your 3 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2004 Mazda 3, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Mazda's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are Mazda 3 Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2004 Mazda 3 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Mazda could be crying out for 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." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Mazda 3.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2004 Mazda 3? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
