Choosing 2014 Nissan Armada Tires

Apart from finding the right tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying 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!) It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one set for winter, one set for summer. 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 Armada.

  • Are Nissan Armada engine noises bad? Strange engine sounds can be a sign something’s off in your Nissan Armada. Knocking or tapping could be a symptom of low oil. A high-pitched whistle could signal an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing can be traced back to a loose fan belt, and grinding might be a sign of brake problems rather than engine issues.

Answers to Your Nissan Armada Car Battery Questions

  • Why won’t my Nissan Armada battery hold a charge?  A battery that won't hold a charge is almost as good as dead. The battery might be old. Or, you may have a habit of leaving your car doors open and the lights on overnight. Stop by for a free battery test at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to learn more about the state of your battery.
  • How long can I expect my car battery to 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.
  • Why is there white, flaky stuff around my Armada’s battery post?  If you notice white, crusty stuff around the battery terminals of your Armada, 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 Armada’s electrical system, potentially leading to poor performance, difficulty starting, and other issues.

2014 Nissan Armada Oil Change Service

Nissan recommends having your 2014 Nissan Armada’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your Armada may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances.

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2014 Nissan Armada motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult Nissan's recommendations to select the right  2014 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.

Make an appointment for an oil change service today and let the oil experts take care of your Armada's engine.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 Nissan Armada

  • Why is the oil light on in my Nissan Armada?  If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Nissan Armada oil change reminder light. If the oil pressure light is illuminated, it could be due to low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor, or a clogged oil filter.
  • 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 Armada spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke?  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.

2014 Nissan Armada Tune-Up & Engine Service

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 2014 Nissan Armada. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*.

The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your Armada's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Armada: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

*Check with a teammate at Firestone Complete Auto Care for complete terms and conditions regarding warranties.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A for 2014 Nissan Armada

  • When should Nissan Armada 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Armada? 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 often should I clean my Nissan Armada 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.

2014 Nissan Armada Suspension Service & Repair

When you first drove your 2014 Nissan Armada, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Armada bounces, 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 2014 Nissan Armada, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Armada suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work.

Questions About 2014 Nissan Armada Steering & Suspension

  • Why does my Nissan Armada bounce so much?  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 tilt forward 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.
  • 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.

A/C Service for Your 2014 Nissan Armada

Our technicians will work to solve your 2014 Nissan Armada A/C problems to the best of their ability. During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2014 Nissan Armada’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test.

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2014 Nissan Armada, we’ll also do 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Nissan guidelines. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2014 Nissan Armada A/C Systems

  • Why do I get hot air from my Armada 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?  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?  Damaged or worn components in your Armada’s electrical or air conditioning system can cause the A/C to only work when the car is moving. You may be dealing with low coolant or a faulty cooling fan.

2014 Nissan Armada Transmission Service & Repairs

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Armada’s performance. 2014 Nissan Armada transmission issues could include shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Nissan Armada transmission problems linger and your could suffer a loss in fuel efficiency or discover that your Armada’s not even driveable. Our technicians know how to service your 2014 Armada up to Nissan-recommended standards. 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.

2014 Nissan Armada Transmission Q&A

  • When should I have my Armada's transmission fluid checked or exchanged?  Caring for your Nissan Armada’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.
  • Can Nissan Armada transmission fluid leak?  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.
  • Is it okay to drive a Armada with 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.

2014 Nissan Armada Inspections

Every service performed at Firestone Complete Auto Care includes a multi-point Courtesy Check. The technician will begin by testing your Nissan Armada's battery to determine how much charge remains. We’ll follow the battery inspection with a visual check of your Nissan Armada’s filters, lights, wiper blades, hoses, alignment, tires, fluid levels, and belts.

Every service performed at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care will include a Courtesy Check, but you can also request a Complete Vehicle Inspection for your 2014 Nissan Armada if you suspect there may be a bigger problem.

Your Nissan Armada could benefit from a Courtesy Check if it has any illuminated dashboard lights, you hear weird noises coming from any part, the engine doesn't start sometimes, or your vehicle pulls to one side.
  • My 2014 Nissan Armada failed the state inspection test. Can you fix it? There's a good chance we can. Stop by for a full system inspection and we'll get to the root of the issue.
  • When’s the best time to have a complete vehicle inspection performed on my Nissan Armada?  You should bring your Nissan Armada in for a full vehicle inspection if something weird happens and you can’t find the problem. A new dashboard light might come on, you may hear strange sounds under the hood, or your steering might feel off. A complete inspection is also a great idea before a road trip for added peace of mind.

2014 Nissan Armada Radiator Repair & Service

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2014 Nissan Armada 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 a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car.

At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Nissan Armada cooling system. 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. From the radiator cap to the heater core, we’re here to give your 2014 Nissan Armada the top-notch service it needs.

2014 Nissan Armada Radiator Q&A

  • Why is the coolant light on my Nissan dashboard on?  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).

  • 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.
