What to Know About 1986 Nissan D21 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Nissan D21, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your D21 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get D21 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1986 Nissan D21!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Nissan, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your D21 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1986 Nissan D21 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Nissan D21 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1986 Nissan D21 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your D21's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 Nissan D21. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan D21 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your D21 stranded. Your Nissan D21 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1986 Nissan D21's engine run smoother. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 1986 D21, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1986 Nissan D21.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.
