Tune-Ups to Help Your Nissan Maxima Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1997 Nissan Maxima in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Maxima’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 follow the guidelines specified by Nissan for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your Maxima's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Nissan Maxima

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Nissan Maxima engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your Maxima'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 Maxima's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Maxima'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.

Questions About 1997 Nissan Maxima Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Nissan Maxima 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 Maxima mean? 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 Maxima engine than others? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
