How often should I service my 1987 Nissan 300ZX?
You want your Nissan 300ZX to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 300ZX could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 300ZX maintenance. Just follow your 1987 Nissan 300ZX maintenance schedule!
Nissan knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 300ZX perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Nissan 300ZX problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Nissan 300ZX and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 300ZX’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1987 Nissan 300ZX. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 300ZX may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan 300ZX battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Nissan 300ZX could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Nissan 300ZX engine. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1987 300ZX in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1987 Nissan 300ZX.
