Often commercial vehicles like the Nissan Primastar end up neglected because employees are harder on vehicles than owners. Simple routines can keep these engines going strong and allow owners to get more out of their Nissans by increasing performance and efficiency. Owners and even employees can easily take care of these simple tasks with the right tools and supplies.
Change the Oil
Oil lubricates the moving parts in engines so they can operate more efficiently with less strain. As an engine runs, tiny bits of debris flake off from parts and clog the oil. The oil filter helps remove particles from the oil, but the filter eventually fills up with debris. Simple oil changes increase the fuel efficiency of the Nissan Primastar van, and that cuts down on operating costs. Oil changes are usually not difficult as long as owners know how to drain the dirty oil, replace the oil filter, and refill the engine with fresh oil. Both the oil and the oil filter have to be compatible with the vehicle. After completing the process, it is important to follow local guidelines regarding the disposal of dirty motor oil.
Replace the Air Filter
To create internal combustion, the engine draws in air through the air filter. The filter ensures that dust and dirt do not get inside the engine and do any damage. The air filter eventually becomes dirty and reduces the amount of air flow to the engine. The harder the engine has to work to draw in air, the less efficient it becomes. Clean air filters increase fuel efficiency and boost engine power. Air filters come in disposable and reusable varieties. Reusable filters such as K&N filters allow users to thoroughly wash them and place them back in vehicles once they dry.
Use Fuel Cleaners
Petrol is not necessarily clean when it goes into the tank of a Nissan Primastar. In fact, fuel is rarely clean. Over time, petrol varnish clogs the fuel injectors and the fuel pump. A fuel cleaner eliminates these deposits and increases power and fuel efficiency for a number of reasons. The fuel injectors spray a fine mist of petrol when they work properly, and the engine ignites the spray. If the injectors clog, they release a stream instead of a spray, and that is harder for the engine to ignite. Additionally, a fuel pump cannot get the petrol to the injectors if it has a clogged fuel filter from the varnish deposits.
