Without regularly scheduled fluid service you may encounter worse performance, difficulty turning or stopping, and worse fuel efficiency.

Power Steering Fluid:
Your Nissan uses fluid to assist you in the handling of your vehicle, and reduces wear and tear on your braking system. Without power steering fluid you may notice it is harder to turn your steering wheel, noisy steering, or a shaky steering wheel while turning. If you notice any signs of low power steering its a good time to schedule maintenance.
Just like your power steering your brakes use hydraulic fluid to make braking easier and reduce wear on your brakes. With low brake fluid you may notice it takes longer to slow down or come to a complete stop which can shorten your brakes lifespan and make it harder to avoid collisions.
To keep your engine from overheating your engine uses coolant which helps keep oil temperatures down and fuel efficiency and emissions from changing. If your Nissan's performance drops or you notice more emissions its important to schedule service before permanent damage occurs.
Differential Gear Oil
One of the often overlooked aspects of car service is the differential gear. The fluid in your differential gear keeps the gears from grinding and getting damaged. Without maintenance your differential gears take on much more wear and tear and if without serviced can leave your vehicle inoperable. If you are hearing grinding, rattling, or clanking coming from under your vehicle you may have low differential fluid levels and should schedule service as soon as possible.
