2006 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, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 2006 Nissan Maxima in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Maxima. 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 take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Nissan, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Maxima’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Nissan Maxima

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2006 Nissan Maxima. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Maxima. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Maxima’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s 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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Where to Get a Tune-Up for Your Nissan Maxima

Schedule your next 2006 Maxima engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Nissan, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.

Questions About 2006 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Nissan Maxima? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • 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.
