2002 Nissan Pathfinder Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2002 Nissan Pathfinder

Your Pathfinder 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 your Pathfinder’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2002 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 fix many 2002 Nissan Pathfinder drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Pathfinder might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, 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." 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.

How much does it cost to fix your 2002 Nissan Pathfinder drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
