Your Guide to 1985 Nissan Maxima Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Nissan Maxima to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Maxima has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Maxima maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1985 Nissan Maxima!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Nissan, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Maxima's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1985 Nissan Maxima problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Nissan Maxima

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Nissan Maxima 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Maxima. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1985 Nissan Maxima running newer, longer. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 Maxima in the chart at the top 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1985 Nissan Maxima.

Routine upkeep for your Nissan Maxima suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Nissan Maxima 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 Maxima's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Nissan Maxima maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Nissan Maxima engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Nissan Maxima radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it.
