1985 Subaru RX Drivetrain Repair & Service

1985 Subaru RX Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your RX's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Subaru, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your RX’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1985 Subaru RX, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Subaru's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Subaru RX Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1985 Subaru RX drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Subaru could be crying out for 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. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Subaru RX drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1985 Subaru RX drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
