1989 Subaru RX Drivetrain Service

All About 1989 Subaru RX Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your RX's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1989 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.

Your Subaru RX may need driveshaft attention if you feel 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. 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.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1989 Subaru RX? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
