2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata Drivetrain Repair & Service

2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata Drivetrain Service

Your MX-5 Miata drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata, 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.
