2002 Mazda Protege Drivetrain Service

Your Protege’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the 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 2002 Mazda Protege, 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.
