About 1986 Nissan 720 Tires

Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Nissan 720 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. It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set 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!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. 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 720.

  • Can I change my Nissan oil on my own?  Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly.

  • Why is my Nissan 720 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke?  There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.

Questions About 1986 Nissan 720 Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Nissan 720 to drive with old spark plugs?  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.

1986 Nissan 720 Suspension Service & Repair

During the first few years you had your 1986 Nissan 720, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough.

Questions About 1986 Nissan 720 Steering & Suspension

  • Why is my Nissan 720 bouncing excessively?  If it feels like you’re on a trampoline every time your 720 goes over a bump or dip, you may have a problem with your struts or shocks. Faulty shocks and struts can’t properly absorb road bumps, leading to a bouncy ride.
  • What can cause the front end of my 720 to dip forward when I apply the brakes?  The forward dip in the front end of your 720 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.
  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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.

The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant.

Frequently Asked Questions for 1986 Nissan 720 A/C Systems

  • Why is my 720 A/C blowing hot air? Maybe your A/C starts cool but then gets warm. Or maybe it never gets cold in the first place. Either way, your A/C troubles could be traced back to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak?  Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your 720’s A/C system naturally degrade. Moisture can get into the system and cause a malfunction, or parts can simply wear out so that your system no longer seals properly.
  • Why won’t my 720’s A/C cool the vehicle when the car is stopped?  A problem with one or more of your air conditioning or electrical system components could cause the A/C to only work when your 720 is moving. You may be low on refrigerant, or the cooling fan could be faulty.

1986 Nissan 720 Transmission Service & Repairs

Questions About 1986 Nissan 720’s Transmission

  • Does my 720's transmission fluid need to be inspected?  Maintaining your Nissan 720 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 720 leak transmission fluid?  Yes. Nissan 720 transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.
  • Is it okay to drive a 720 with a transmission fluid leak?  Driving with a transmission fluid leak is not recommended. Transmission fluid is essential to the proper operation of the transmission system, and a leak can cause serious problems, including reduced performance, overheating, and potentially transmission failure.

  • What's the ideal timing for a full vehicle inspection on my Nissan 720?  The best time to get a complete vehicle inspection for your Nissan 720 is before going on a road trip for the peace of mind. Another great time is when something abnormal occurs, and you can't pinpoint the issue. You might notice new dashboard lights, hear strange noises from under the hood, or your steering wheel doesn't feel like it once did.

Questions About Nissan 720 Radiators

  • What does the coolant light on my Nissan dashboard mean?  Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What is causing my 720 to overheat?  Low coolant, a damaged cooling fan, a faulty water pump, a malfunctioning thermostat, or a clogged radiator could all cause your Nissan 720 engine to overheat.
  • Why does the radiator in my 720 sound like it’s rumbling or boiling?  Your 720’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!
