2014 Nissan Maxima Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

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, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 2014 Nissan Maxima. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Maxima’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. 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.

Nissan Maxima Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2014 Nissan Maxima. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and 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. 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.

Where Should I Go for My Nissan Maxima Tune-Up?

Schedule your next 2014 Maxima engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Not sure when you’re due for a tune-up? Use Nissan’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

2014 Nissan Maxima Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Nissan Maxima spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Nissan Maxima? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • 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.
