Nissan knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Pulsar NX running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1986 Nissan Pulsar NX problems.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 Nissan Pulsar NX. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan Pulsar NX 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Pulsar NX) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Nissan Pulsar NX could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1986 Nissan Pulsar NX engine. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1986 Pulsar NX in the chart at the top of this page.
