Choosing 2009 Nissan 370Z Tires

Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Nissan 370Z tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. Other drivers prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. If you're an avid off-roader who yearns to pioneer new paths, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't hit the hills very often. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you, or get started by browsing tires that fit your Nissan 370Z.

2009 Nissan 370Z Tire Questions

  • Is Nissan tire inflation important? A small decrease in tire pressure can have a big impact on your driving. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help improve braking time, increase fuel economy, and boost tire lifespan.
  • What do the numbers on my Nissan 370Z tires mean? Your tire sidewall numbers tell you the recommended load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to a tire technician to learn how to read Nissan tire numbers.
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Nissan tires at home? Stay on top of your tire tread depth to help avoid a dangerous drive. You can check tread depth with a penny. Hold the penny so that Abraham Lincoln is facing you, then place your penny into a tread groove upside down. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Nissan 370Z tires. Grab a penny. Hold the so that Abe Lincon's head is facing you and his hair is pointing toward the ground. Then, place the penny into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Nissan 370Z tires.

2009 Nissan 370Z Auto Repair Q&A

  • Do I still need scheduled maintenance even when nothing is wrong with my Nissan? Don’t neglect scheduled maintenance. Sure, you could skip out on a few recommended maintenance services, but you may pay the price later. Bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care at recommended service intervals to address minor issues before they get out of hand and keep your car running newer, longer.
  • Should I bring my Nissan in even if I can't pinpoint the problem? You’re in your car, day in and day out. So, it’s only expected that you know your car better than anyone else! If you notice mysterious smells, strange engine noises, or other out-of-the-ordinary symptoms while driving, trust your instincts and stop into Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check. Catching a potential issue early could help prevent Nissan 370Z repairs.
  • Are the repairs you recommend for my Nissan actually needed? Trust is more than just a saying on the wall. It’s a window underneath it. That’s why we won’t recommend services or repairs for your 2009 Nissan 370Z unless we think they’re vital to your safety on the road.

2009 Nissan 370Z Brake Repair

Your Nissan 370Z engine may be strong and reliable. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2009 Nissan 370Z brake repairs. Our brake repair services include brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, brake rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and wheel cylinder and brake caliper installation.

Questions About Your Nissan 370Z Brakes

  • What is causing my 370Z to shake when I brake? Faulty brake calipers, worn brake pads or rotors, loose or worn suspension parts, and warped rotors can cause your 370Z to shake during braking. If you’re experiencing odd brake behavior, schedule a free brake inspection at a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • How long should my 370Z brake pads last? You can usually get around 30,000 to 40,000 miles out of your brake pads, but how and where you drive your 370Z can affect this. Hauling large loads or riding your brakes can shorten their lifespan, while smoothly braking and mostly sticking to highways can help your brake pads last longer.
  • Should my 370Z be leaking brake fluid when the car is off? Your 370Z has a closed hydraulic brake system, meaning you should not have a brake fluid leak under normal conditions. However, parts of your brake system can wear out over time or become damaged, which can lead to a brake fluid leak.

2009 Nissan 370Z Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2009 Nissan 370Z drivetrain components Your Nissan could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates.

2009 Nissan 370Z Drivetrain Q&A

  • What are signs my Nissan drivetrain is damaged? Your Nissan 370Z drivetrain might be damaged if you notice strange noises from the rear of your vehicle, see fluid leaking, or have issues turning.
  • What causes a 370Z’s malfunction indicator light (MIL) to illuminate? A multitude of problems can activate your 370Z’s malfunction indicator light (better known as the check engine light), including issues with the engine, transmission, sensors, electrical system, or connectors.
  • Is a drivetrain malfunction in my 370Z serious? A drivetrain malfunction in your 370Z should never be taken lightly. Driving with a malfunctioning drivetrain can put you in danger and lead to further vehicle damage, so it's essential to have a qualified mechanic assess and repair the problem as soon as possible.

2009 Nissan 370Z Alignment Services

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Nissan 370Z’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Nissan intended them to. Bring your 2009 Nissan 370Z in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Nissan recommendations.

Nissan 370Z Alignment Questions

  • Are there road conditions that can hurt my Nissan 370Z alignment? When it’s safe to do so, avoid driving over potholes or hitting curbs. These road obstacles can wreak havoc on your wheel alignment, as can wear and tear from rough road conditions.
  • How frequently should you get a wheel alignment for your 370Z? It’s usually suggested you check your alignment about every 6,000 miles or 6 months (whichever occurs first). Still, you should reference your 370Z owner’s manual for Nissan's recommended interval.
  • Do you need an alignment with new 370Z tires? It’s likely not a requirement to get an alignment when you install new tires on your 370Z, but it's a smart idea to do so anyway. An alignment can help ensure even tire wear, smooth handling, and better fuel efficiency.

2009 Nissan 370Z Engine Repair

If your 2009 Nissan 370Z needs engine repair, our technicians will provide you with a thorough explanation beforehand. We don't start working until we have your approval. If a service can wait, we’ll make sure you know. We'll also tell you if it's necessary for your safety. We want to provide you with the information you need to make an informed engine repair decision. Choose Firestone Complete Auto Care for Nissan 370Z engine repairs and you can feel confident knowing that we use Nissan-approved parts and components like the timing belt, motor oil seal, ignition coil, or a different component.

2009 Nissan 370Z Engine Q&A

  • Why does my 370Z’s check engine light come on when I start it? It’s usually normal for your check engine light to turn on upon ignition. This is just your 370Z testing its circuits. The dash light shouldn't stay on. If it does, you might want to bring your vehicle in for service.
  • Why is my Nissan 370Z making engine noise? Strange engine sounds can be a sign something’s off in your Nissan 370Z. Knocking or tapping could be a symptom of low oil. A high-pitched whistle could signal an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing can be traced back to a loose fan belt, and grinding might be a sign of brake problems rather than engine issues.
  • What could damage a Nissan engine? Certain driving habits can hurt your engine. These habits include driving on an empty fuel tank, revving your engine while the vehicle is in Park, or slamming the gas pedal while the engine is still cold. Steer clear of these habits to help protect engine performance and efficiency.

2009 Nissan 370Z Tire Repair

If the road has been rough on your 2009 Nissan 370Z tires, Firestone Complete Auto Care can help. Our tire technicians can determine whether it's safe to plug and patch the tire, or whether it needs to be replaced. We’ll begin by taking a look at where the damage is, the type and extent of the tire damage, and how all of your tires are wearing.

If your 2009 Nissan 370Z tire puncture can be repaired, we'll follow three basic steps to repair it: (1) Separate the tire from the vehicle wheel, (2) fill in the area that’s been punctured to prevent damage from moisture, and (3) seal the inner liner with a repair unit to prevent air loss.

Frequently Asked Nissan 370Z Tire Repair Questions

  • Can I drive my Nissan on a flat tire? Driving on a flat or underinflated tire can put extra stress on your wheels and alignment. While it’s sometimes necessary to drive a short distance on a flat tire to get to a safe place, don’t take any other trips in your 370Z until you can have the flat tire repaired or replaced.
  • Will a temporary sealant fix my Nissan's flat tire? Temporary sealants will solve your problem… for a little bit. If you’ve seen temporary or emergency tire sealant before (it usually comes in a can), it can be tempting to turn to this as a solution for your flat tire. Keep in mind that these fixes could buy you some time to get to Firestone Complete Auto Care for a proper repair, but they could also cause some harm in the process (for example, damage to your TPMS). Plus, using a product like this could void your tire warranty.
  • Why do the tires on my 370Z keep losing air? Your 370Z tires might keep losing air due to a leaking valve stem, puncture or hole in the tire tread or sidewall, or damaged wheel.

About 2009 Nissan 370Z Scheduled Maintenance

There's no need to guess when it's time to get 370Z maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2009 Nissan 370Z! The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Nissan, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 370Z's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2009 Nissan 370Z problems later.

Questions About 2009 Nissan 370Z Maintenance

  • When should I have Nissan 370Z alignment checked?  Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Nissan 370Z need high mileage oil?  Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Nissan 370Z engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan?  Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan 370Z in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.

Commonly Asked Nissan 370Z Battery Questions

  • Why won’t my Nissan 370Z battery hold a charge? A battery is in its final hour when it will no longer hold a charge. The battery may be too old. Or, you may have been leaving your car doors ajar and the cabin light at night. Stop by for a complimentary battery check at your favorite Firestone Complete Auto Care and get a handle on your car battery’s health.
  • What is the average lifespan of a car battery?  Car battery lifespan varies depending on a few factors, including driving conditions, accessories, how well it’s maintained, and the type of battery. On average, a car battery lasts about three to five years.
  • What is the white, crusty stuff around my 370Z’s battery post?  If you notice white, crusty stuff around the battery terminals of your 370Z, it's likely corrosion. A chemical reaction between battery acid and the air can create a white, powdery substance that builds up over time on the terminals. This buildup can interfere with the electrical connection between the battery and your 370Z’s electrical system, potentially leading to poor performance, difficulty starting, and other issues.

Oil Changes for 2009 Nissan 370Z

Your 2009 370Z’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. No matter the mileage, your 370Z may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Nissan if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds.

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2009 Nissan 370Z motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult Nissan's recommendations to select the right  2009 370Z oil and talk with a teammate to learn more about our oil options: Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ conventional oil, Pennzoil® High Mileage Vehicle® motor oil, Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology, and Shell Rotella® heavy-duty engine oil. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your 370Z’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. Get professional engine care by making an oil change appointment for your 370Z today.

2009 Nissan 370Z Oil Change Questions

  • What does it mean if my Nissan 370Z oil light comes on?  If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Nissan 370Z oil change reminder light. If the oil pressure light is illuminated, it could be due to low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor, or a clogged oil filter.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan 370Z oil at home?  First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also helps your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan 370Z spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke?  You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.

2009 Nissan 370Z Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 370Z. Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2009 Nissan 370Z. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 370Z. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your 370Z's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your 370Z: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

*Check with a teammate at Firestone Complete Auto Care for complete terms and conditions regarding warranties.

2009 Nissan 370Z Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Nissan 370Z spark plugs be replaced?  Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Nissan’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 370Z? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • How frequently do the fuel injectors in my Nissan 370Z need to be cleaned? The cleaning schedule for vehicle fuel injectors varies depending on your driving conditions and the type of fuel you use. Some manufacturers suggest cleaning your fuel system as part of routine maintenance, while others will recommend it on an as-needed basis if you’re experiencing poor performance. Reference your Nissan owner’s manual for exact guidelines.

2009 Nissan 370Z Suspension Service & Repair

When you first bought your 2009 Nissan 370Z, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 370Z bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2009 Nissan 370Z, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 370Z suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission.

2009 Nissan 370Z Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Why is my Nissan 370Z bouncing excessively?  If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your 370Z to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my 370Z front end dip forward when I brake?  The forward dip in the front end of your 370Z when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's suspension?  Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, nd also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.

2009 Nissan 370Z A/C Service Near You

Our technicians will work to solve your 2009 Nissan 370Z A/C problems to the best of their ability. During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2009 Nissan 370Z’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure.

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2009 Nissan 370Z, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Then, they’ll use Nissan’s specifications to evacuate the system. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system.

2009 Nissan 370Z A/C System FAQs

  • What’s making my 370Z A/C put out warm air?  An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • What causes A/C system leaks? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your 370Z’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
  • Why does my vehicle have to be moving for my 370Z’s A/C to work? There could be issues with one or more components in the air conditioning or electrical system. Your 370Z may have a faulty cooling fan or low refrigerant.

2009 Nissan 370Z Transmission Service

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. Nissan 370Z transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Nissan 370Z transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your 370Z isn’t working at all. Our expert techs are familiar with 2009 370Z services and perform them according to Nissan-recommended specifications. If you think there’s something wrong with your 370Z’s transmission, schedule an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to help keep your Nissan running for miles and miles.

Questions About 2009 Nissan 370Z’s Transmission

  • How often does my 370Z transmission fluid need to be checked?  Maintaining your Nissan 370Z transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Nissan. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can my Nissan 370Z leak transmission fluid?  Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Nissan 370Z, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
  • Is it okay to drive a 370Z with a transmission fluid leak?  You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your 370Z to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.

Every service performed at Firestone Complete Auto Care includes a multi-point Courtesy Check. First, a technician will pop the hood on your Nissan 370Z and test the battery to see how much charge it has left – and determine if it may fail in the near future.

We perform a Courtesy Check any time you bring your car to a local Firestone Complete Auto Care for service, but you can also request a Complete Vehicle Inspection for your 2009 Nissan 370Z if you suspect there may be a bigger problem.

The goal of this type of inspection is to unearth significant issues that might need immediate attention in order to prevent further damage.

In some cities or states, your local Firestone Complete Auto Care may be able to perform state-mandated inspections or safety tests on your vehicle. Specific requirements for these types of inspections vary by state.

Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • Why is my 370Z overheating?  Low coolant, a damaged cooling fan, a faulty water pump, a malfunctioning thermostat, or a clogged radiator could all cause your Nissan 370Z engine to overheat.
  • Why does the radiator in my 370Z sound like it’s rumbling or boiling?  Your 370Z’s cooling system could contain air pockets or your radiator might be clogged. Another possibility is a faulty radiator cap, which is an easy fix!
