Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder

Tune-Ups to Help Your Nissan Pathfinder Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Pathfinder. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Nissan for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Pathfinder’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Nissan Pathfinder

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Pathfinder. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Pathfinder's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Where to Get a Nissan Pathfinder Tune-Up

Schedule your next 2013 Pathfinder engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Not sure when you’re due for a tune-up? Use Nissan’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2013 Nissan Pathfinders

  • When should Nissan Pathfinder spark plugs be replaced? 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? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 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.
