What to Know About 1996 Nissan Pickup Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Nissan Pickup to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Pickup could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Pickup, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1996 Nissan Pickup!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Nissan, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Pickup's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1996 Nissan Pickup problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Nissan Pickup Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1996 Nissan Pickup to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Pickup's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1996 Nissan Pickup. 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Pickup battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 Pickup could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1996 Nissan Pickup running newer, longer. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1996 Pickup in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1996 Nissan Pickup.

Maintaining your Nissan Pickup 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, perform Nissan Pickup suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Nissan Pickup's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Nissan Pickup services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Nissan Pickup cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Nissan Pickup radiator?

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Nissan Pickup? You know your Nissan Pickup better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Nissan Pickup? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Nissan Pickup? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan Pickup 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.
