1996 Nissan Maxima Drivetrain Repair

All About 1996 Nissan Maxima Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Maxima's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1996 Nissan Maxima 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.
