Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1998 Nissan Pathfinders

  • What happens if my Nissan Pathfinder spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Nissan’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Pathfinder? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Nissan Pathfinder. 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 some driving habits better for my Nissan Pathfinder engine than others? 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.
