1985 Nissan 300ZX Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Nissan 300ZX Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1985 Nissan 300ZX in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 300ZX. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Nissan for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 300ZX’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Nissan 300ZX

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Nissan 300ZX engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your 300ZX's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your 300ZX. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 300ZX can determine what kind of service it needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

1985 Nissan 300ZX Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Nissan 300ZX to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Nissan’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 300ZX? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Nissan 300ZX engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
