Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2010 Nissan Maxima

Tune-Ups to Help Your Nissan Maxima Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2010 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 help your engine start smoothly and run 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Maxima’s engine running smoother, longer.

Nissan Maxima Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2010 Nissan Maxima. 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*. 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). 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.

2010 Nissan Maxima Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • 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? 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Nissan 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.
