Frequently Asked Common Service Questions

Every vehicle comes with many moving parts that should be serviced frequently. Although servicing times may vary by vehicle, the following answers are the most common time or mileage. To be completely sure of your routine maintenance timeline, check your owner's manual or ask one of our technicians.

  • How Often Do I Need An Oil Change?

    Your oil helps to keep your engine lubricated, clean, and running smoothly and should be changed frequently. Nissan recommends that you have your Nissan model's oil changed every 7,500 miles or six months or every 3,750 miles or three months depending on your driving conditions. You can check your engine's oil level to make sure by pulling the dipstick out of tube, wiping it off, sticking it back in and seeing how high the oil ends up. If it's too low you will need to replace it.

  • How Often Do I Need To Clean The Air Filter?

    A dirty air filter can affect your fuel economy as well as your acceleration. You should have your filter cleaned or replaced about every three years or 30,000 miles.

  • When Should I Get A Tire Rotation/Wheel Alignment?

    Wear can occur if you don't have your tires rotated or aligned. This should be done every time you get an oil change.

  • Should I Worry About Having My Lease Serviced?

    Yes, you should have your lease serviced like every other vehicle. Sometimes, if you have chosen the maintenance option as a part of your lease, routine maintenance is included.

  • Why Is My Check Engine Light On?

  • When Should I Have My Battery Replaced?

  • What's A Powertrain Warranty?

    A powertrain warranty covers anything that provides the vehicle with power, typically the engine, transmission, and drivetrain.

  • What's The Difference Between A Certified Technician And My Local Mechanic?
