It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Nissan D21!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Nissan themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your D21 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Nissan D21 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Nissan D21 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Nissan D21 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 1989 Nissan D21. In general, car batteries only last three to 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan D21 battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty D21) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Nissan D21 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1989 Nissan D21's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1989 D21. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1989 Nissan D21? We can help with that, too!

To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Nissan D21's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Nissan D21 maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C.

Questions About 1989 Nissan D21 Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1989 Nissan D21. Get answers to common Nissan D21 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Nissan D21? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Nissan D21 to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Nissan D21 engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan D21 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
