Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2012 Nissan Altima

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, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2012 Nissan Altima’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Altima. 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 take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Nissan, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Altima’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Nissan Altima

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2012 Nissan Altima. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your Altima's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your Altima. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Altima can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2012 Nissan Altimas

  • What happens if my Nissan Altima spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Altima? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Nissan Altima. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Nissan Altima engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
