Your Guide to 2000 Nissan Maxima Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Nissan Maxima and it'll take care of you. 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Maxima maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2000 Nissan Maxima!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Nissan themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Maxima's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2000 Nissan Maxima problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Nissan Maxima Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2000 Nissan Maxima for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Maxima’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2000 Nissan Maxima? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan Maxima battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Maxima stranded. Your Nissan Maxima could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2000 Nissan Maxima engine. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2000 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 2000 Nissan Maxima.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan Maxima can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Nissan Maxima cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Nissan Maxima? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2000 Nissan Maxima maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2000 Nissan Maxima Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2000 Nissan Maxima. Get answers to common Nissan Maxima maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Nissan Maxima alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2000 Maxima is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Nissan Maxima to high mileage oil? If your Nissan Maxima has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Nissan dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Nissan Maxima, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
