Let’s take a few minutes to review some of the suggested maintenance needs and when they should be completed.
Do you know how often you should replace your tires? Most tires have a lifespan between 25,000 and 50,000, and the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends that you change your vehicle’s tires every six years. There are several factors you should be aware of regarding your tires, such as how many miles you put on your tires and the types of terrain you travel over.
Tires are constructed with a pattern of grooves and ridges surfaces that are designed to properly grip the road, especially when you are traveling over sand or mud. These grooves will wear down over time, and when they do, it’s time to replace your tires. You can help stay off the wearing down of these grooves by periodically rotating your tires.
Every automobile engine will need an oil change, but do you know how often? The conservative estimates for oil-change intervals used to be as low as 3,000 miles, but that was before significant improvements in the fuel-delivery systems, engine materials, and manufacturing methods. In today’s modern vehicles, drivers can typically stretch the change time to over 7,500, and even as high as 10,000 miles. So how do you know when is the right time for your vehicle?
That’s where our expert maintenance team comes in to help. Our helpful service team at Performance Nissan will be able to asses your current Nissan vehicle oil life, and tell you when you need an oil change. We are also able to help you decide between the less expensive conventional oil and the better stability of the synthetic oil. When you require oil help, schedule a quick service consultation with our team at Performance Nissan today!
You may not even be aware of what a cabin air filter is, but you will when the Florida spring season comes around. Typically located behind your Nissan automobiles glove box, the cabin air filter is tasked with filtering all of the air that comes through the car’s HVAC system and is designed to prevent pollutants such as dust, pollen, smog and mold spores from entering the interior. When this system fails, your A/C unit will not be as capable, and those with allergies will suffer the most.
The cabin air filter is similar to the air filter in your own home, which means that it will need to be replaced often. It is recommended to replace your cabin air filter every 30,000 miles or once a year. Still, if you are affected by pollen and allergies more efficiently, you may want to visit us at Performance Nissan more often for a replacement.
Your engine is the heart of your used Nissan vehicle, and keeping it in working order should be a priority. That’s why it’s essential to change your engine’s air filter often. Much like the cabin air filter, the engine air filter is designed to catch sand and other debris from entering your engine. When an air filter gets dirty and clogged, it can put additional strain on your engine, making it harder to function.
To prevent this extra strain, your air filter should be replaced between 15,000 and 30,000 miles, or depending on the driving conditions. If you often drive on unpaved roads or in dense air pollution areas, you may frequently need to replace your engine air filter. Reach out to our service team at Performance Nissan, and we’ll be able to tell you if you require a new engine air filter today!
Your Nissan’s vehicle timing belt is more important than you may realize as it powers the crankshaft and moves the pistons of your engine. Without it, your motor will stop running, which can lead to dangerous situations if you are on the highway. But that’s not all. A worn timing belt can lead to symptoms that include a loss of power, loss of fuel economy, misfiring and engine vibrations.
That’s why it is recommended that you have your timing belt inspected every 60,000 to 100,000 miles at the local Nissan dealership near me. Here, our knowledgeable certified team will not only check to see if your timing belt needs to be replaced, but have the tools on hand to change out any old and worn out parts.
With regular maintenance and repair, your car will perform as it should on the roads of Fort Lauderdale, Weston, and Tamarac. To ensure your vehicle is protected, follow the guidelines we talked about, and your car will continue to run right for years to come.
