2012 Nissan Pathfinder Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2012 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 a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 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.

What Are Nissan Pathfinder Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2012 Nissan Pathfinder drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Nissan could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. 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.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2012 Nissan Pathfinder? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
