2005 Nissan Pathfinder Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2005 Nissan Pathfinder

Your Pathfinder’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Nissan, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2005 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.

Nissan Pathfinder 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2005 Nissan Pathfinder drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Pathfinder 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. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. 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 2005 Nissan Pathfinder drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
