2008 Mazda RX-8 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2008 Mazda RX-8

Your RX-8 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your RX-8’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2008 Mazda RX-8 to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Mazda's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
