2003 Nissan Maxima Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Nissan Maxima Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2003 Nissan Maxima’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Maxima’s engine. 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 take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Nissan, you invest in your Maxima's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Nissan Maxima

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Nissan Maxima engine tune-up services. One option 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Maxima. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your Maxima. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Maxima can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2003 Nissan Maximas

  • 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Nissan 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 stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
