Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Nissan 300ZX Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1996 Nissan 300ZX and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1996 Nissan 300ZX? In general, car batteries only last 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. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 300ZX) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Nissan 300ZX could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1996 Nissan 300ZX running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1996 300ZX. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1996 Nissan 300ZX? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan 300ZX can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Nissan 300ZX suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Nissan 300ZX's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan 300ZX maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Nissan 300ZX cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Nissan 300ZX? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1996 Nissan 300ZX maintenance.
