Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2018 Nissan Altima

Tune Into Your Nissan Altima

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 want your 2018 Nissan Altima’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Altima’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Nissan's recommendations, 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 2018 Nissan Altima. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Altima. 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 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. 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 to Get a Nissan Altima Tune-Up

Schedule your next 2018 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: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

2018 Nissan Altima Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Nissan Altima to drive with old spark plugs? 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 does a puddle underneath my Nissan Altima mean? 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? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
