What to Know About 1983 Nissan Maxima Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Nissan Maxima to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Maxima. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Maxima maintenance. Just follow your 1983 Nissan Maxima maintenance schedule!

Nissan knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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 Maxima perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1983 Nissan Maxima problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Nissan Maxima Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1983 Nissan Maxima for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Maxima'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 1983 Nissan Maxima. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Maxima may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan Maxima 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 Maxima won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1983 Nissan Maxima running newer, longer. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 1983 Maxima, 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 1983 Nissan Maxima.

Routine upkeep for your Nissan Maxima suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Nissan Maxima steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Nissan Maxima's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan Maxima maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 Maxima’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Nissan Maxima radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1983 Nissan Maxima maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1983 Nissan Maxima. Get answers to common Nissan Maxima maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Nissan Maxima? You know your Nissan Maxima better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Nissan Maxima? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Nissan Maxima? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan Maxima 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.
