2000 Nissan Pathfinder Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2000 Nissan Pathfinder

Your Pathfinder’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the 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 Pathfinder and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2000 Nissan Pathfinder, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Nissan's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Nissan Pathfinder Drivetrain Repairs

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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2000 Nissan Pathfinder drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Nissan could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Nissan Pathfinder drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 2000 Nissan Pathfinder drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
