About 2017 Nissan GT-R Tires

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Nissan GT-R 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. It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one for summer and one for winter. 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!

Next, consider your driving style. If you're a big off-roading fan who forges paths where others can't, you have very different needs than a long-distance commuter who sticks to the highway. Browse Nissan GT-R tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you.

For example, mainly driving on highways and gradually braking can help increase the lifespan of your brake pads, and carrying hefty loads or riding your brakes can shorten it.
  • Can brake fluid leak when my GT-R is off? Your GT-R brake system is a closed hydraulic system, so a brake fluid leak likely means you have an issue in your brake system. Over time, brake components can wear out or get damaged, causing a brake fluid leak.

Questions About 2017 Nissan GT-R Engines

  • Why does my GT-R’s check engine light come on when I start it? It’s usually normal for your check engine light to turn on upon ignition. This is just your GT-R testing its circuits. The dash light shouldn't stay on. If it does, you might want to bring your vehicle in for service.
  • Why does my Nissan engine sound different?  Strange under-the-hood noises can point to problems within your Nissan GT-R engine. Tapping or knocking could mean you need an oil change. Whistling sounds could mean you have an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing may be caused by a loose fan belt, and grinding could be a sign that something is wrong with your brakes — not the engine.
  • Are you unknowingly damaging your Nissan GT-R engine? Certain driving habits can damage your engine and should be avoided.

2017 Nissan GT-R Tire Repair

Frequently Asked Nissan GT-R Tire Repair Questions

  • How soon should I have my flat tire repaired? Driving on a flat tire is not a good idea. Your GT-R engine will keep running with a flat tire, but you could damage your wheel by continuing to drive on a flat.
  • Will a temporary sealant fix my Nissan's flat tire? Temporary sealants will solve your problem… for a little bit. If you’ve seen temporary or emergency tire sealant before (it usually comes in a can), it can be tempting to turn to this as a solution for your flat tire. Keep in mind that these fixes could buy you some time to get to Firestone Complete Auto Care for a proper repair, but they could also cause some harm in the process (for example, damage to your TPMS). Plus, using a product like this could void your tire warranty.
  • What is causing the tires on my GT-R to keep losing air? Possible reasons for your GT-R tires continuously losing air include a leaking valve steam, wheel damage, and a puncture or hole in the rubber.

Stop by for a complimentary battery check at your favorite Firestone Complete Auto Care and get a handle on your car battery’s health.

  • Why is there white, crusty buildup on my GT-R’s battery post?  A chemical reaction between battery acid and the air can cause a white, crusty buildup to form on the terminals of your GT-R car battery.

2017 Nissan GT-R Oil Changes

Your 2017 GT-R’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. No matter the mileage, your GT-R may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2017 Nissan GT-R motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Check your owner's manual and talk with a technician to select the right Nissan GT-R 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Nissan GT-R

  • What can cause the oil light on my Nissan GT-R to illuminate?  If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Nissan GT-R 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.
  • How hard is it to change Nissan GT-R 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 GT-R 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.

The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your GT-R: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best.

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

2017 Nissan GT-R Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Nissan GT-R to drive with old spark plugs?  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 GT-R? 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 do Nissan GT-R 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.

2017 GT-R Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

During the first few years you had your 2017 Nissan GT-R, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your GT-R bounces, drifts 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 2017 Nissan GT-R in for steering and suspension services. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost.

2017 Nissan GT-R Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Why is my Nissan GT-R bouncing excessively?  If it feels like you’re on a trampoline every time your GT-R 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.
  • What can cause the front end of my GT-R to dip forward when I apply the brakes?  As you brake, the forward momentum of your GT-R 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.
  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Nissan's 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.

2017 Nissan GT-R A/C Service Near You

Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your 2017 Nissan GT-R A/C problems. During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2017 Nissan GT-R A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test.

Let's say we repair your 2017 Nissan GT-R 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 perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Nissan guidelines. To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system.

Questions About 2017 Nissan GT-R A/C Systems

  • Why do I get hot air from my GT-R 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 GT-R’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 GT-R’s A/C only work when the car is moving?  Damaged or worn components in your GT-R’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.

2017 Nissan GT-R 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 tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. 2017 Nissan GT-R transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood.

Our technicians are trained to service 2017  Nissan GT-R transmission systems according to vehicle manufacturer recommendations. As soon as you suspect something’s wrong with your GT-R’s transmission, book an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to help keep your Nissan running for miles and miles.

2017 Nissan GT-R Transmission Q&A

  • When should I have my GT-R's transmission fluid checked or exchanged?  Maintaining your Nissan GT-R 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 GT-R?  Yes. Nissan GT-R transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.
  • Can I drive my Nissan GT-R with a transmission fluid leak?  Driving with a transmission fluid leak is not recommended. Transmission fluid is essential to the proper operation of the transmission system, and a leak can cause serious problems, including reduced performance, overheating, and potentially transmission failure.

2017 Nissan GT-R Inspections

Every service performed at Firestone Complete Auto Care includes a multi-point Courtesy Check. First, a technician will pop the hood on your Nissan GT-R and test the battery to find out how much charge is remaining on it. After we’ve inspected your Nissan GT-R’s battery, we’ll visually inspect your windshield wiper blades, lights, filters, fluid levels, belts, hoses, tires, and alignment.

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 2017 Nissan GT-R if you suspect there may be a bigger problem.

Common 2017 Nissan GT-R Vehicle Inspection Questions

  • How do I know if my Nissan GT-R needs a check-up? You drive your car, day in and day out, so you know it best. If you notice unusual engine noises or you can’t shake the feeling that something is 'off,' start with a Courtesy Check to stay ahead of potential issues.
  • Can you fix my 2017 Nissan GT-R so it will pass a state inspection test? There's a good chance we can. Stop by for a full system inspection and we'll get to the root of the issue.
  • What's the ideal timing for a full vehicle inspection on my Nissan GT-R?  The best time to have a complete vehicle inspection done on your Nissan GT-R is when you notice something is off but you can’t locate the issue yourself. Schedule an inspection if you experience any unusual symptoms, such as unfamiliar dashboard indicators, strange engine noises, or steering changes. An inspection can be especially beneficial before a road trip for the simple peace of mind. You can feel confident in your adventure!

2017 Nissan GT-R Radiator Repair & Service

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2017 Nissan GT-R is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Nissan recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific 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.

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 GT-R. 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. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that your 2017 Nissan GT-R is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About Nissan GT-R Radiators

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Nissan?  Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard.
