1990 Nissan Maxima Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Nissan Maxima

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1990 Nissan Maxima in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Maxima. 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Maxima’s engine running smoother, longer.

Questions About 1990 Nissan Maxima Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Nissan Maxima spark plugs be replaced? 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 Maxima? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Nissan Maxima. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Maxima engine? 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.
