1983 Nissan 280ZX Drivetrain Repair & Service

1983 Nissan 280ZX Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 280ZX's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Nissan, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your 280ZX and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1983 Nissan 280ZX, 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 Nissan's recommendations.

Your 280ZX might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates.
