Here’s Why 2001 Nissan Maxima Scheduled Maintenance Matters

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. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Maxima, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2001 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 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2001 Nissan Maxima problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Nissan Maxima

Bring your 2001 Nissan Maxima to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. 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.

Could your 2001 Nissan Maxima be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan Maxima battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Maxima stranded. Your Nissan Maxima won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2001 Nissan Maxima running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2001 Maxima. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2001 Nissan Maxima.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.

2001 Nissan Maxima Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2001 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 2001 Maxima is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Nissan Maxima? 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!
  •  Why are my Nissan dashboard lights on? 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.
