2010 Nissan Armada Tire Information

Apart from finding the right tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Nissan Armada tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. 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 winter and one 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!

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. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Nissan Armada tires online.

2010 Nissan Armada Oil Change Service

Nissan recommends having your 2010 Nissan Armada’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Your Armada may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds.

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Nissan Armada. Talk with a teammate and consult your owner's manual before picking a motor oil. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, you can choose from the following oils: 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.

Get professional engine care by making an oil change appointment for your Armada today.

2010 Nissan Armada Oil Change Q&A

  • Why is the oil light on in my Nissan Armada?  Your Nissan Armada oil change reminder light may come on if you're overdue for an oil change. The oil pressure light will typically come on if the oil level in the engine is too low, the oil pump is failing, you have a clogged oil filter, or there's a faulty oil pressure sensor.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan Armada oil at home?  Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Armada exhaust smoke grayish or blue?  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.

Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Armada’s engine. Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2010 Nissan Armada. 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 Armada’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Armada's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A for 2010 Nissan Armada

  • Will it hurt my Nissan Armada to drive with old spark plugs?  Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Nissan Armada mean? 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 Armada need to be cleaned? 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.

2010 Nissan Armada Suspension Service & Repair

When you first bought your 2010 Nissan Armada, 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 Armada jolts, 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 2010 Nissan Armada in for suspension and steering service. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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.

2010 Nissan Armada Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What can cause my Nissan Armada to have a bouncy ride?  If it feels like you’re on a trampoline every time your Armada 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.
  • Why does my Armada front end dip forward when I brake?  As you brake, the forward momentum of your Armada combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Armada'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.

Convenient & Local 2010 Nissan Armada A/C Service

Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your 2010 Nissan Armada A/C problems. During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2010 Nissan Armada’s A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test.

Let's say we repair your 2010 Nissan Armada A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. To start this process, a technician will flush out the old refrigerant from your vehicle’s A/C system. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Nissan's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant.

Questions About 2010 Nissan Armada A/C Systems

  • Why do I get hot air from my Armada A/C?  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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak?  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 Armada's A/C system.
  • What is causing my Armada’s A/C to only work when the car is in motion?  If your A/C only works when the vehicle is moving, there could be a problem with part of your Armada’s A/C or electrical system. Potential issues include low coolant or a faulty cooling fan.

2010 Nissan Armada Transmission Service

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Armada’s performance. 2010 Nissan Armada transmission issues could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Nissan Armada transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Armada isn’t working at all. Our expert techs are familiar with 2010 Armada services and perform them according to Nissan-recommended specifications. Schedule an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of transmission problems to help keep your Nissan running for miles and miles.

2010 Nissan Armada Transmission Q&A

  • When should I have my Armada's transmission fluid checked or exchanged?  Regularly checking and exchanging your 2010 Armada’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Nissan's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Nissan Armada?  Yes. Nissan Armada 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.
  • Can I still drive my Nissan Armada if it has a transmission fluid leak?  Driving your Armada 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.

2010 Nissan Armada Radiator Repair & Service

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2010 Nissan Armada is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Nissan recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant.

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 Armada. 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). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks. When it comes to radiator service and repair, your 2010 Nissan Armada is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2010 Nissan Armada Radiator Q&A

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Nissan?  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 Armada to overheat?  Low coolant, a damaged cooling fan, a faulty water pump, a malfunctioning thermostat, or a clogged radiator could all cause your Nissan Armada engine to overheat.
  • What can cause a Armada 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 Armada. You might also have a damaged radiator cap (super easy to fix!) or a clogged radiator.
