1999 Nissan Pathfinder Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Nissan Pathfinder

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1999 Nissan Pathfinder in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Pathfinder. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Nissan's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Pathfinder’s long-term engine performance.

Nissan Pathfinder Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1999 Nissan Pathfinder. 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*. The second service focuses on your Pathfinder's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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 Pathfinder’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Pathfinder: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

1999 Nissan Pathfinder Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Nissan Pathfinder 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 does a puddle underneath my Nissan Pathfinder mean? 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Nissan Pathfinder 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.
