1987 Mazda RX-7 Drivetrain Repair

1987 Mazda RX-7 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your RX-7's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Mazda, from back to front. It’s one of your RX-7’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1987 Mazda RX-7 to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Mazda's recommendations.

What Are Mazda RX-7 Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1987 Mazda RX-7 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your RX-7 might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, 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. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Mazda RX-7 doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1987 Mazda RX-7? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
