Choosing 2013 Nissan Armada Tires

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Nissan Armada tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. 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!) 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!

Next, consider your driving style. If you're a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. Browse Nissan Armada tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you.

Commonly Asked Nissan Armada Battery Questions

  • Why doesn’t my Nissan Armada battery stay charged?  A car battery that needs to be jump-started every time is as good as dead. It may be getting old. Or, you’ve been leaving the doors slightly open and the dome lights on during the night. Stop in for a free battery check at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care and learn more about your battery's charge.
  • How long do car batteries last?  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 Armada’s battery post?  The white, crusty stuff that can accumulate around Armada car battery terminals is called corrosion. It is caused by a chemical reaction between the battery acid and the air, which creates a white, powdery substance that can build up on the terminals over time. Corrosion can interfere with the flow of electricity between the battery post and the car's electrical system, sometimes leading to poor electrical performance, difficulty starting, and even premature battery failure.

Oil Changes for 2013 Nissan Armada

Nissan recommends changing your 2013 Armada’s oil at regular intervals. No matter the mileage, your Armada may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2013 Nissan Armada motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Consult Nissan's recommendations to select the right  2013 Armada 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. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Armada's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. Let the experts take care of your Armada’s engine by making an oil change appointment today.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Nissan Armada

  • Why is my Nissan Armada oil light illuminated?  The oil change light in your Nissan Armada could be triggered by an overdue oil change. However, if the oil pressure light is on, you may be dealing with low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a clogged oil filter, or a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor.
  • Can I change my Nissan Armada 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 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.

*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.

Questions About 2013 Nissan Armada Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Nissan Armada spark plugs fail?  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 does a puddle underneath my Nissan Armada mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Nissan Armada. 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 do Nissan Armada fuel injectors 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.

2013 Nissan Armada Suspension Service & Repair

When you first bought your 2013 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 an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2013 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 all of your options and the potential cost.

2013 Nissan Armada Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Why is my Nissan Armada bouncing excessively?  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's nose dive down when I hit the brakes?  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?  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.

2013 Nissan Armada A/C Service Near You

Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your 2013 Nissan Armada A/C problems. During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2013 Nissan Armada 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.

Let's say we repair your 2013 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. Then, they’ll use Nissan’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant.

Questions About 2013 Nissan Armada A/C Systems

  • What’s making my Armada 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?  Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Armada’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 Armada’s A/C cool the vehicle when the car is stopped? There could be issues with one or more components in the air conditioning or electrical system. Your Armada may have a faulty cooling fan or low refrigerant.

2013 Nissan Armada Transmission Service

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. 2013 Nissan Armada transmission issues could include shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under 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 technicians are trained to service 2013  Nissan Armada transmission systems according to vehicle manufacturer recommendations. As soon as you suspect something’s wrong with your Armada’s transmission, book an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to help diagnose, treat, and prevent major transmission issues.

Questions About 2013 Nissan Armada’s Transmission

  • How often does my Armada transmission fluid need to be checked?  Maintaining your Nissan Armada 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 Armada leak transmission fluid?  Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Nissan Armada, 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.
  • Can I still drive my Nissan Armada if it has 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 Armada to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.

Signs something is up include dashboard lights illuminating, odd noises coming from the engine, and your steering feeling loose or tight.

Radiator Service & Repair for 2013 Nissan Armada

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2013 Nissan Armada is essential for long-term engine health. Nissan recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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 Armada. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

Common Nissan Armada 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 can cause 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.
  • Why does the radiator in my Armada sound like it’s rumbling or boiling?  Air pockets in your Armada’s cooling system may cause a rumbling or boiling noise. You could also have a clogged radiator or simply need to replace the radiator cap.
