1987 Subaru RX Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1987 Subaru RX

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 the most complex systems in your RX and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1987 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.

When to Get Subaru RX 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1987 Subaru RX drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Subaru could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. 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 1987 Subaru RX drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
