Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2001 Nissan Altra EVs

  • When should Nissan Altra EV 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Altra EV? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Nissan Altra EV. 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 some driving habits better for my Nissan Altra EV engine than others? 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.
