2018 Nissan Kicks Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Nissan Kicks

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 2018 Nissan Kicks. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Kicks’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Nissan for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your Kicks's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Nissan Kicks

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2018 Nissan Kicks. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Kicks. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 Kicks's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Kicks's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2018 Nissan Kickss

  • What happens if my Nissan Kicks spark plugs fail? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Kicks? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Nissan Kicks 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.
