2017 Nissan Pathfinder Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Nissan Pathfinder

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Pathfinder’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. 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.

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 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your Pathfinder's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your Pathfinder. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Pathfinder's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

2017 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Nissan 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.
