2006 Mazda 6 Drivetrain Service

All About 2006 Mazda 6 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 6's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Mazda, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your 6 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2006 Mazda 6, 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 Mazda's recommendations.

When to Get Mazda 6 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2006 Mazda 6 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Mazda could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Mazda 6 drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2006 Mazda 6 drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
