Overview of Essential Nissan Frontier Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1998 Nissan Frontier for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Frontier'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 1998 Nissan Frontier. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Frontier may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan Frontier battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Nissan Frontier could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1998 Nissan Frontier engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1998 Frontier. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1998 Nissan Frontier.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan Frontier can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Nissan Frontier steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Nissan Frontier's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan Frontier maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Nissan Frontier’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Nissan Frontier radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1998 Nissan Frontier maintenance.
