About 1994 Nissan Altima Tires

Other than getting the proper tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Nissan Altima tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. Think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience when evaluating your driving conditions. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. Other drivers buy one set of all-season tires instead. That way they don't have to return to the tire shop and their vehicle is always ready for sun, rain, and light snow!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. If you're a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. 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 Altima.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1994 Nissan Altima

  • What does it mean if my Nissan Altima oil light comes on?  Your Nissan Altima oil change reminder light may come on if you're overdue for an oil change.

  • How hard is it to change Nissan Altima oil at home?  Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.

Questions About 1994 Nissan Altima Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Nissan Altima to drive with old spark plugs? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Altima? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • How often should I clean my Nissan Altima fuel injectors? There is no hard and fast rule on how often fuel injectors should be cleaned, and it can vary based on driving habits and fuel type. Some manufacturers may suggest including a fuel system cleaning in your regular maintenance schedule. Or you may need to clean your fuel injectors as needed if you notice signs of a fuel system problem.

1994 Nissan Altima Suspension Service & Repair

When you first bought your 1994 Nissan Altima, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Altima feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1994 Nissan Altima in for steering and suspension services. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Altima 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.

Questions About 1994 Nissan Altima Steering & Suspension

  • Why is my Nissan Altima bouncing excessively?  If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your Altima to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my Altima front end dip forward when I brake?  When you brake, the forward momentum combined with your vehicle's weight sends a lot of force to the vehicle's front end. A bad suspension can cause all that weight and force to push the front end downward.
  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Altima's steering and suspension?  Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.

Our technicians will work to solve your 1994 Nissan Altima A/C problems to the best of their ability. During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 1994 Nissan Altima A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed.

Questions About 1994 Nissan Altima A/C Systems

  • Why do I get hot air from my Altima A/C? 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 causes A/C system leaks?  Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Altima’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 does my vehicle have to be moving for my Altima’s A/C to work? There could be issues with one or more components in the air conditioning or electrical system. Your Altima may have a faulty cooling fan or low refrigerant.

1994 Nissan Altima Transmission Service & Repairs

Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. 1994 Nissan Altima transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood.

Our technicians are trained to service 1994  Nissan Altima transmission systems according to vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If you think there’s something wrong with your Altima’s transmission, schedule an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to help keep your engine running at peak performance.

1994 Nissan Altima Transmission Q&A

  • Does my Altima's transmission fluid need to be inspected?  Maintaining your Nissan Altima 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.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Nissan Altima? Yes, your Nissan Altima can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Altima ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues. Common causes of transmission fluid leaks include worn seals, a damaged transmission housing, a loose or cracked transmission pan, an overfilled transmission, or faulty transmission lines.
  • Should I avoid driving my Nissan Altima if there is a transmission fluid leak?  Driving your Altima with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.

1994 Nissan Altima Radiator Repair & Service

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1994 Nissan Altima is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. Nissan recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light.

When you come to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we’ll begin your radiator repair with an in-depth inspection of the cooling system in your Nissan Altima. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants).

Common Nissan Altima Radiator Questions

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Nissan?  Your engine might be about to overheat. If your low coolant light is on, pull over in a safe area and wait for your engine temperature to go down. Once it’s safe to do so, bring your car to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to have the coolant system inspected.
  • What is causing my Altima to overheat?  One of the main reasons your Nissan Altima engine might overheat is because you don’t have enough coolant. Other causes include a clogged radiator, a damaged cooling fan, a malfunctioning thermostat, or a faulty water pump.
  • What can cause a Altima radiator to make boiling or rumbling sounds? If your radiator sounds like it's boiling or rumbling, you could have air pockets in the cooling system of your Altima. You might also have a damaged radiator cap (super easy to fix!) or a clogged radiator.
