Overview of Essential Nissan Pickup Maintenance Needs

The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1997 Nissan Pickup? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Pickup may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan Pickup battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Pickup stranded. Your Nissan Pickup won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1997 Nissan Pickup's engine run smoother. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1997 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1997 Nissan Pickup.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan Pickup can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Nissan Pickup's steering and suspension system.

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.

  • 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 switch my Nissan Pickup to high mileage oil? If your Nissan Pickup has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should.
