Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1987 Nissan Pulsar NX!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Nissan themselves.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Nissan Pulsar NX Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Nissan Pulsar NX for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Pulsar NX’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1987 Nissan Pulsar NX? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Pulsar NX may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 Pulsar NX battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 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 help your 1987 Nissan Pulsar NX's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 Pulsar NX. 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1987 Nissan Pulsar NX.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan Pulsar NX can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Nissan Pulsar NX steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Nissan Pulsar NX's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan Pulsar NX maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Nissan Pulsar NX cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Nissan Pulsar NX radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1987 Nissan Pulsar NX maintenance and repairs.

1987 Nissan Pulsar NX Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1987 Nissan Pulsar NX. Get answers to common Nissan Pulsar NX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Nissan Pulsar NX? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Nissan Pulsar NX need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Nissan Pulsar NX engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan Pulsar NX 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.
