About 2007 Nissan Altima Tires

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Nissan Altima tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. When thinking about your driving conditions, consider where you live (mountains vs. city vs. countryside) and the kind of weather can catch you off-guard. (Watch out Tornado Alley!) 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 prefer the convenience of all-season tires. They make one trip to the tire shop and they're pretty much ready for rain, light snow, or sun!

Next, consider your driving style. 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. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Nissan Altima tires online.

2007 Nissan Altima Maintenance Q&A

  • When should I have Nissan Altima alignment checked?  You know your Nissan Altima better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.

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 Altima engines.
  • Can Nissan dashboard warning lights wait?  Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan Altima 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 Altima Battery Questions

  • Why won't my Nissan Altima battery stay charged? 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.
  • How long do car batteries last?  A car battery normally lasts three to five years, but this number can vary based on battery type, your driving habits, and battery maintenance.
  • Why is there white, crusty buildup on my Altima’s battery post?  If you notice white, crusty stuff around the battery terminals of your Altima, 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 Altima’s electrical system, potentially leading to poor performance, difficulty starting, and other issues.

Oil Changes for 2007 Nissan Altima

Nissan recommends changing your 2007 Altima’s oil at regular intervals. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your Altima may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances.

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2007 Nissan Altima motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Check your owner's manual and talk with a technician to select the right Nissan Altima oil, whether it's Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ conventional oil, Pennzoil® High Mileage Vehicle® motor oil, Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology, or Shell Rotella® heavy-duty engine oil. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Altima’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. Make an appointment for an oil change service today and let the oil experts take care of your Altima's engine.

2007 Nissan Altima Oil Change Questions

  • Why is the oil light on in my Nissan Altima?  Your Nissan Altima oil change reminder light might illuminate if it’s been too long since your last oil change. On the other hand, the oil pressure light might illuminate due to a clogged oil filter, a faulty oil pressure sensor, low engine oil levels, or a malfunctioning oil pump.
  • Can I change my Nissan oil on my own?  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 exhaust smoke gray or blue?  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.

Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2007 Nissan Altima

Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Altima’s power on the road. The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Nissan Altima engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*.

During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Altima’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Altima's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

*Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate for full terms and conditions on warranties.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A for 2007 Nissan Altima

  • When should Nissan Altima 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Nissan Altima? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Nissan Altima. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • How often should I clean my Nissan Altima fuel injectors? The frequency at which car fuel injectors should be cleaned can vary depending on several factors, including the type of fuel used and the driving conditions. Some manufacturers generally recommend a fuel system cleaning as part of your general car maintenance, or as needed based on symptoms of poor fuel system performance.

2007 Altima Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

When you first drove your 2007 Nissan Altima, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Altima feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2007 Nissan Altima, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work.

2007 Nissan Altima Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Why is my Nissan Altima bouncing excessively? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • Why does my Altima's nose dive down when I hit the brakes?  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?  Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.

A/C Service for Your 2007 Nissan Altima

Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your 2007 Nissan Altima A/C problems. During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2007 Nissan Altima’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test.

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2007 Nissan Altima, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Nissan's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant.

2007 Nissan Altima A/C System FAQs

  • Why do I get hot air from my Altima A/C? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • What causes A/C system leaks?  A/C system leaks are often due to a combination of age and moisture. Rubber seals and gaskets naturally degrade over time, allowing refrigerant to exit and moisture to enter your Altima's A/C system.
  • Why does my Altima’s A/C only work when the car is moving? 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.

2007 Nissan Altima Transmission Service & Repairs

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Nissan Altima transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Nissan Altima transmission problems linger and your could suffer a loss in fuel efficiency or discover that your Altima’s not even driveable. Our expert techs are familiar with 2007 Altima services and perform them according to Nissan-recommended specifications. As soon as you suspect something’s wrong with your Altima’s transmission, book an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to help keep your engine running at peak performance.

2007 Nissan Altima Transmission Q&A

  • How often does my Altima transmission fluid need to be checked?  Caring for your Nissan Altima’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Nissan, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • 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.
  • Is it okay to drive a Altima 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 Altima to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.

2007 Nissan Altima Inspections

When you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care for any service, we’ll automatically do a multi-point Courtesy Check. First, a technician will pop the hood on your Nissan Altima and test the battery to see how much charge it has left – and determine if it may fail in the near future. The check will continue with a visual inspection of your Nissan Altima's windshield wiper blades, lights, filters, hoses, alignment, tires, fluid levels, and belts.

Every service performed at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care will include a Courtesy Check, but we can also dig deeper and perform a Complete Vehicle Inspection on your 2007 Nissan Altima if you prefer. A Complete Vehicle Inspection includes everything in a Courtesy Check, plus an examination (by hand!) of your exhaust system, steering and suspension, and brakes. The goal of this type of inspection is to unearth significant issues that might need immediate attention in order to prevent further damage.

Then, we’ll move on to a machine-powered coolant exchange. Finally, we’ll refill the flushed sealants, lubricants and chemicals, then do a pressure check to catch any possible leaks. When it comes to radiator service and repair, your 2007 Nissan Altima is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
