2013 Nissan Altima Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Nissan Altima Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2013 Nissan Altima’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Altima’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Nissan's recommendations, you invest in your Altima's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Nissan Altima

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Nissan Altima engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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. 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. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Altima: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Where Should I Go for My Nissan Altima Tune-Up?

Schedule your next 2013 Altima engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Nissan, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

2013 Nissan Altima Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Nissan Altima spark plugs be replaced? 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? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 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.
