Your 200SX drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Nissan, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your 200SX and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1998 Nissan 200SX, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Nissan's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1998 Nissan 200SX drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Nissan 200SX may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Nissan 200SX drives.
