1989 Nissan Pathfinder Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 Nissan Pathfinder

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Pathfinder's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Nissan, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your Pathfinder’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1989 Nissan Pathfinder, 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.

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1989 Nissan Pathfinder drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Nissan could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. 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. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Nissan Pathfinder doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1989 Nissan Pathfinder drivetrain repair is expensive. Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
