Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2012 Nissan Frontier

Tune-Ups to Help Your Nissan Frontier Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 2012 Nissan Frontier. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Frontier’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Nissan, you invest in your Frontier's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Nissan Frontier

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2012 Nissan Frontier. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your Frontier's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your Frontier's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Frontier's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Where to Get a Nissan Frontier Tune-Up

If you’re looking for 2012 Frontier engine tune-up services, head to 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: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

Questions About 2012 Nissan Frontier Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Nissan Frontier 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 Frontier mean? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Nissan Frontier engine than others? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
