2012 Nissan Altima Drivetrain Repair

2012 Nissan Altima Drivetrain Service

Your Altima drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. 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. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Nissan Altima, 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.

When to Get Nissan Altima Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2012 Nissan Altima drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Altima might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. 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. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Nissan Altima drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2012 Nissan Altima drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.

  •  Can Nissan drivetrain maintenance help me save money? Yes. Servicing the drivetrain system can help you avoid more significant repairs. A bad drivetrain can put more stress on other vehicle components.
  • What are the symptoms of a damaged Nissan drivetrain system? Noises toward the back of your Nissan Altima, leaking fluid, trouble turning — these could all be signs of drivetrain damage you want to address. Take action before something more severe happens.
  • How often should I come in for Nissan Altima differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car. At a minimum, we recommend getting your differential inspected and the differential fluid changed as a part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine since your vehicle cannot function without a differential.
