Overview of Essential Nissan 300ZX Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Nissan 300ZX for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 300ZX's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Nissan 300ZX? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan 300ZX battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 300ZX stranded. Your Nissan 300ZX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1989 Nissan 300ZX's engine run smoother. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1989 300ZX in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1989 Nissan 300ZX.

Routine upkeep for your Nissan 300ZX suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Nissan 300ZX steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Nissan 300ZX's steering and suspension system.
