It’s vital to keep your Nissan Altima up to date on your regular recommended preventative maintenance schedule. This will help make sure that your sedan keep navigating the roads in Cranston, Pawtucket, and East Providence at peak performance and efficiency.
However, it can be confusing for some people to know what to have done, and when. That’s why we’re proud to provide this information about the manufacturer-recommended Nissan Altima Maintenance Schedule in order to keep your car at its best for years to come.
Nissan Altima Maintenance Schedule
Keeping up with your Nissan Altima maintenance schedule is a lot more than just having your oil changed every few months. There’s a lot of regular preventative services that should be taken care of to not only keep the car running like new, but to stay on top of your warranty requirements as well. Read over this list of recommended services at various mileage levels so you can be sure your car keeps on getting you where you need to go.
Your first scheduled maintenance is at 7,500 miles. At this level, you should have basic services done including changing your oil, replacing your oil filter, and having your wheels and tires checked for tread, rotated, and adjusted to the proper air pressure. These services need to be done every 7,500 miles you drive the car.
In addition, you should have a courtesy inspection done every 7,500 miles to check up on your brakes, your fluids, belts, hoses, and the like just to ensure everything is solid, secure, and running as it should.
Every 15,000 miles, in addition to the 7,500-mile service, there is one additional procedure that needs to be done: your cabin air filter should be replaced. This will help to keep the air you breathe in the car clear and free from contaminants.
In addition to these services, when your car hits 30,000 miles, and every 30,000 miles thereafter, you’ll want to replace your engine air filter. This is an important part of your engine’s function, and a dirty air filter will make the car run rough, lower your fuel efficiency, and put unnecessary strain on the engine.
Lest you think you’re done there, your Nissan is designed to run for well over 100,000 miles, and there are a couple of recommended services when you hit the 105,000-mile mark and beyond. At this level, you’ll want to have your spark plugs replaced as even one misfiring spark plug makes your engine work harder, run rougher, and can drastically reduce your mpg.
You’ll also want to flush and replace your coolant. Just like your other fluids, this gets fouled with gunk that can clog the workings of your vehicle, and so keeping it clean keeps the car running like new.
