1988 Nissan 200SX Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1988 Nissan 200SX

Your 200SX’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 200SX’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1988 Nissan 200SX to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Nissan's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
