1986 Nissan 720 Maintenance Schedule

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1986 Nissan 720?

Here’s Why 1986 Nissan 720 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Nissan 720 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 720 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 720 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1986 Nissan 720!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Nissan, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 720 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1986 Nissan 720 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Nissan 720 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1986 Nissan 720 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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 720’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 Nissan 720. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Nissan 720 battery. 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. 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 720 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1986 Nissan 720 running newer, longer. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 1986 720, check out the information table at the beginning 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1986 Nissan 720.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan 720 can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Nissan 720 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Nissan 720's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Nissan 720 services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Nissan 720 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.

  • When should I have Nissan 720 alignment checked? You know your Nissan 720 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Nissan 720 need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Nissan 720? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan 720 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
