What to Know About 1989 Nissan Pathfinder Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Nissan Pathfinder and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Pathfinder could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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 Pathfinder, 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 1989 Nissan Pathfinder!

Nissan knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Pathfinder's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1989 Nissan Pathfinder problems later.

Overview of Essential Nissan Pathfinder Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Nissan Pathfinder for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Pathfinder’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Nissan Pathfinder? 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan Pathfinder battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Pathfinder stranded. Your Nissan Pathfinder could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1989 Nissan Pathfinder engine.

Routine upkeep for your Nissan Pathfinder suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Nissan Pathfinder suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Nissan Pathfinder's steering system require regular maintenance.

A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Nissan Pathfinder cooling, heating, and climate control system.
