2013 Mazda 3 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2013 Mazda 3

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: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2013 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.

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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2013 Mazda 3 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your 3 might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Mazda 3 drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2013 Mazda 3? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
