2006 Nissan Altima Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Nissan Altima Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 2006 Nissan Altima. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Altima’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Nissan for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Altima’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Nissan Altima

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Nissan Altima engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Altima. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your Altima's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Altima's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

2006 Nissan Altima Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Nissan Altima to drive with old spark plugs? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Nissan Altima? 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 some driving habits better for my Nissan Altima engine than others? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
