1986 Subaru RX Drivetrain Service

All About 1986 Subaru RX Drivetrain Service

Your RX drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Subaru, from back to front. It’s one of your RX’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 Subaru RX, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Subaru's recommendations.

Subaru RX Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1986 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. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Subaru RX.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1986 Subaru RX drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
