Your Guide to 1998 Nissan Pathfinder Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Nissan Pathfinder, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Pathfinder maintenance. Just follow your 1998 Nissan Pathfinder maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Nissan themselves. 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Pathfinder running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1998 Nissan Pathfinder problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Nissan Pathfinder Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1998 Nissan Pathfinder to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Pathfinder. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan Pathfinder battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Pathfinder) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Nissan Pathfinder won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Nissan Pathfinder running newer, longer. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 Pathfinder, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1998 Nissan Pathfinder? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Nissan Pathfinder steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Nissan Pathfinder's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan Pathfinder maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Nissan Pathfinder’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Nissan Pathfinder radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it.

  • When should I have Nissan Pathfinder alignment checked? You know your Nissan Pathfinder better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Nissan Pathfinder need high mileage oil? If your Nissan Pathfinder has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Nissan dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Nissan Pathfinder, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
