1998 Mazda 626 Drivetrain Service

All About 1998 Mazda 626 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 626's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Mazda, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your 626’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 Mazda 626, 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.
