1997 Nissan Altima Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1997 Nissan Altima Drivetrain Service

Your Altima 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 Altima and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1997 Nissan Altima 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.

Nissan Altima Drivetrain Repairs

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 1997 Nissan Altima drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Nissan could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice 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." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Nissan Altima.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1997 Nissan Altima drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
