Beaumont Nissan Maintenance
Perchance your new or new-to-you Nissan vehicle may come ready with top-of-the-line amenities, all vehicles still require regular maintenance to keep them in their best condition. Of course the best type of maintenance is the preventative kind. On the other hand when small issues go unnoticed, they can lead to larger issues in the future. Knowing the right solution for your car requires an expert. Here are the most frequently asked questions we get about Nissan maintenance in the Beaumont area.
Nissan Engine & Ignition System
Why won't my Nissan start?
Although there are various reasons why your Nissan won't start, one likely possibility is your car's battery. For example, if you somehow managed to leave your lights on, then its reasonable to assume that the charge is out. One early warning sign of a low battery charge is if it takes longer to start when you turn the key. Of course, there may be other reasons why your car or truck won't start, so it's always best to consult a certified Nissan mechanic.
Nissan Brake Change
When do I need my brakes checked?
Each auto care appointment should include a standard vehicle inspection. A licensed Nissan mechanic will inspect your vehicle for any other recommended services. As brake quality is judged by size, look, and feel, this is the best way to have your brakes checked. Always have squeaky brakes looked at by a professional, as it can be a symptom of a larger issue.
Nissan Fuel Filter
When do I replace my car's fuel filter?
A clean fuel filter ensures trouble-free and optimal engine performance. Always consult your Nissan mechanic or automakers' manual, but fuel filters usually can operate between twenty to forty thousand miles.
Nissan Brake Pad Replacement
When do I change the brake pads?
The working life of your brake pad depends upon your typical driving routine and of course, the operating environment. Based on severe to moderate usage, brake pads are usually designed to last through twenty to twenty-five thousand miles. Factors that will significantly reduce its life are braking frequently, braking at high-speed, elevated temperatures and driving on rocky terrain and uneven areas. On average, brake pads may give from forty to sixty thousand miles of pad life under normal driving conditions.
The Check Engine Light
How come my check engine light is on?
Computerized dashboards are standard issuein most modern cars. These include sensors and indicators to assist drivers in managing vehicle safety. Common reasons that your check engine light is on include time for an oil change. This light also produces a computerized error code which is easy to read by a diagnostic machine.
Nissan Tire Rotation
What is a tire rotation? And when should I get it?
A car's primary point of contact with the pavement are its tires. Because of this constant pressure, periodic rotation of the tires is required to best distribute the wear and tear. A tire rotation after every 6,000 to 8,000 miles is highly advised. Rotation ensures that your tires will wear evenly. Note, also, that 4WD and off-roading, as well as individual driving habits may influence your tire rotation frequency and interval, outside of a standard Nissan tire rotation schedule.
Nissan Oil Change - Beaumont
How long between oil changes?
While many auto technicians swear by the 3,000-7,000 mile or 3 month oil-change rule, every rule has exceptions. Our first suggestion is to check your auto user manual. This can provide you with the most precise info available, especially for relatively new models. On the other hand, however, the manual provides little guidance when it comes to vehicle wear, history, and age. This more complete recommendation requires an expert's opinion. If your personal mechanic seems unsure, then contact your Nissan dealer right away for the best advice.
Nissan Battery Replacement
How do I know when to change my battery?
The typical car battery lasts between 3 to 5 years, dependent upon care and use. The easiest way to avoid a battery issue is monitor your vehicle's battery health. This usually takes place during a routine service inspection. Most car batteries, like other perishable goods, have a clearly marked date of expiration.
