What is My Nissan Maintenance Schedule?

Mechanic working under the hood

Sticking to a regular Nissan maintenance schedule is essential for keeping it running in top condition on the Strongsville roads. You may be wondering, “What is my car maintenance schedule?” Regular maintenance includes oil changes, brake inspections, tire rotations, and fluid replacements. Each vehicle’s maintenance schedule is a bit different, but there are some important intervals that almost every vehicle sticks to. The service team at Ken Ganley Nissan has organized the general car maintenance schedule into a quick and easy guide below, so you know exactly when you should schedule an appointment and bring your Nissan in for service!

What is My Car Maintenance Schedule?

Every 3 months or 3,000 miles:

  • Automatic transmission, power steering, wiper fluid levels
  • Engine oil and air filter
  • Belts, exhaust, and hoses
  • All lights inside and out
  • Fuel filter
  • Tire pressure, tire tread wear and tear check

Every 6 months or 6,000 miles:

  • Car battery and cables
  • Chassis lubrication
  • Windshield wipers
  • Polish your vehicle

Every 12 months or 12,000 miles:

  • Brake system
  • Coolant levels
  • Transmission fluid levels
  • Steering and suspension

Monthly Car Maintenance

It’s important to stick to your car maintenance schedule at the intervals above, but there are also some at-home inspections you can do every month or so to make sure everything is running properly. Here are a few routine tasks you can perform:

  • Check to see if the check engine light is on
  • Clean the interior and exterior
  • Make sure all the interior and exterior lights work
  • Check tire pressure and tread
  • Make sure windshield wiper fluid is filled

Why Follow a Nissan Maintenance Schedule?

You might be wondering why exactly you should stick to the maintenance schedule we’ve outlined above, especially since regular service costs money and you might think your Nissan is in good enough condition not to need it.

The truth is, there are a number of benefits to keeping up with regularly-scheduled maintenance, and a lot of them are preemptive. For example, just like you should get regularly checked up at the doctor, getting your car regularly inspected allows technicians to spot and address potential problems before they get out of hand. Waiting too long to get an issue with your car checked out will ultimately cost you more time, money, and energy. Sticking to a maintenance schedule is also good for drivers who may not take their car out around Brunswick very regularly, since it lets technicians make sure that all the parts are in working order and aren’t suffering from lack of use.
