Chicago Nissan Service Tips to Educate the Brand’s Fans

Chicago Nissan ServiceAt Kelly Nissan, our Chicago Nissan dealership, we want our customers to take driving as serious as we do. It is vital that your vehicle always performs at its full potential. Car parts and accessories don’t last forever and neither do you, which is why we pledge to keep you safe while riding in our brand’s vehicles. Over time, parts wear and tear and it is our responsibility that you are well informed and taken care of—it’s what we’re here for.

Safety Tips

Tire Pressure: One of the most important things you can do your for vehicle is to check your tires on a weekly basis. When checking your tires, keep your eyes peeled for adverse tire wear, splits in the sidewall, or chunks of missing rubber gouged from those curbs you hug way too closely.

Also remember that if you find something like a nail, or other objects, protruding through the tire, do not remove it. As long as it is stuck, it is sealing the hole, so take it to our Chicago Nissan dealership’s service department to have it plugged. Tires are important—remember to take good care of them!

Oil Levels: Though they’re easy to maintain, oil changes are often forgotten and can result in a domino effect of issues for your vehicle. If the oil level is too high or too low your engine will pay the price.

When you check you oil level, be sure to wait until the engine has cooled. Then, locate the dipstick—pull it out and wipe it clean. After it is clean, push it all the way back in until the top is properly position in the dip tube. After waiting another moment, pull it out to check the level of the oil. If the oil stain rests between the high and low marks you have enough oil; however, it is rests too low—it’s time you’ve added some more or it will result in another set of issues.

Choosing the right washes and waxes is very important to keep your paint from fading. For example, bird droppings will clean easier on a waxed finish than just regular paint.

Though no matter what, you always want to clean up bird excretion as soon as possible. There are toxic compounds in bird waste that will damage most regular paint jobs. If you leave it to dry in the sun, you may just end up with a dull spot on your hood.

Remember these maintenance tips after purchasing a new Nissan. Even if you have a bird brain, and you forget these tips and plenty more, we’re here to help! Just visit us at our Chicago Nissan Service Department. Give us a call at (888) 699-0643.
