2013 Nissan Pathfinder Maintenance Schedule

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder?

Here’s Why 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Nissan Pathfinder, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Pathfinder has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Pathfinder maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Nissan themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Pathfinder running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2013 Nissan Pathfinder problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Nissan Pathfinder

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2013 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.

Could your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder be ready for a new battery? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Pathfinder may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Nissan Pathfinder battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). 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 prevent premature wear on your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder engine. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 Pathfinder in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Nissan Pathfinder steering and suspension 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, provide the appropriate Nissan Pathfinder steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Nissan Pathfinder's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan Pathfinder maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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. Need a new Nissan Pathfinder radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2013 Nissan Pathfinder maintenance.

  • When should I have Nissan Pathfinder alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2013 Pathfinder is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Nissan Pathfinder to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Nissan Pathfinder engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan Pathfinder in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
