The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Protege'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 Protege and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1997 Mazda Protege, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Mazda's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
