Question about 2002 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

2002 Nissan Altima maintenance schedule.

Although the owner's manual states all sorts of mileage intervals for various service, my '02 has 128,000mi. on it and runs like a top. Nothing outside of gas, oil, brakes, tires, and air filters, etc. I am sure it could use a tune-up, a tranny service and radiator flush. Are there any other key things I need to do other than those 3 main things? It has been a wonderful car and I want it to last for awhile yet. However, do not want to spend a ton of $$$ on things that are not necessary. Any input would be much appreciated.

How often to change tranmission fluid on a 2002 lincoln ls


Hi Gary,

There is a small dilema here. The Owner's Manual for your Lincoln says to refer to the Maintenance schedule to find the proper interval for replacing your transmission fluid. Here is where the problem arises: The Maintenance schedule published for your vehicle says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals for several transmission models. Then it "excepts" the models that are not lsted by transmission model number in the preceeding text - yours is not listed.

Then, when I go to the service manual and search by your vehicle (2000 Lincoln LS) it says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals without any exceptions.

Here is what I recommend to my customers:

CHECK the fluid every 30,000 miles and REPLACE the fluid and filter every 60,000 miles. I have found that this works for almost every make and model out there. I have several customers with over 300,000 miles on their cars that have never had transmission overhauls.

For free PDF version downloads of both the Owner's Manual and the Maintenance Schedule (3rd printing) for your vehicle, click the links below.

How do i change the timing belt on a nissan altima 2001


A Nissan ultima does not have a timing belt,it has a timing chain,look up in your manual for your maintenance schedules when and at what mileage you are needed to change the chain,usually the chain is changed when it is loose through stretching in wear over mileage,a very loose chain has a rattling noise in the engine compartment by the cam gears,good luck ,hope that I was helpful.

Not really a problem - I bought the 2000 Altima with 145,000 miles. Running great. But, are there any maintenance logs with the various servicing schedules/components/time intervals available for that...

I have 103,500 miles on my 2002 nissan sentra when should I change the timing chain


The timing chain doesn't really have a maintenance period. They don't have a habit of breaking or stretching. Timing belts on some vehicles do have a recomended replacement period. Locate your local NTB, Firestone, or Sears for the maintenance schedule.

2002 impala - service vehicle soon light appears at random intervals. put a code scanner on the car and no codes returned. opening/closing trunk seems to make message disappear....what is going on?


Service vehicle soon is not the same as Check Engine. This is a reminder to perform some regularly scheduled maintenance based on your mileage. Could just be an oil change. Look in your owner's manual to find out.
