I drive a 1997 Nissan 200SX SE-R (the 2.0-liter version). I have a question regarding general maintenance, specifically related to gas mileage. My fuel efficiency has decreased in recent months. The car is well-maintained and has otherwise been running fine. Oil is changed regularly, tire pressure is checked frequently, and the car does not stall or have any other noticeable problems. However it has been a while since the car had a general tune-up (1 or 2 years). As a fairly inexperienced car mechanic but with some natural affinity, what can I do myself to check up and tune up the car's performance, and specifically its fuel efficiency? Replace the spark plugs? Clean, check, or replace any specific engine parts?
have the same problem?
