2014 Nissan Leaf Tire Information

Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Nissan Leaf tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. 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 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!

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. 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 Leaf.

Questions About 2014 Nissan Leaf Tires

  • Why does Nissan tire inflation matter? Even a tiny decrease in tire pressure could impact your safety and fuel economy. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Nissan Leaf tires? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Nissan tires at home? Stay on top of your tire tread depth to help avoid a dangerous drive. You can check tread depth with a penny. Hold the penny so that Abraham Lincoln is facing you, then place your penny into a tread groove upside down. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Nissan Leaf tires. Grab a penny. Hold the so that Abe Lincon's head is facing you and his hair is pointing toward the ground. Then, place the penny into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Nissan Leaf tires.

  • What does it mean to be 'in tune' with your car? No, we’re not talking about finding the best jams on the radio! You know your car best, and you’re the first person who will notice if something doesn’t feel right (like new smells, sights, or sounds coming from your car). If you sense that something is 'off,' stop in for a Courtesy Check to have these symptoms checked out ASAP. Early action could help you prevent Nissan Leaf repairs.
  • Why do you recommend certain repairs for my Nissan? Trust is more than just a saying on the wall. It’s a window underneath it. That’s why we won’t recommend services or repairs for your 2014 Nissan Leaf unless we think they’re vital to your safety on the road.

Brake Repair for Your 2014 Nissan Leaf

Your Nissan Leaf may be powered by a strong engine. But if you can’t stop it, it’s as good as scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait!

Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 2014 Nissan Leaf.

Nissan Leaf Brakes Questions

  • What can cause my Leaf to shake when I apply the brakes? Faulty brake calipers, worn brake pads or rotors, loose or worn suspension parts, and warped rotors can cause your Leaf to shake during braking. If you’re experiencing odd brake behavior, schedule a free brake inspection at a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • How long should my Leaf brake pads last? Brake pads typically last about 30,000 to 40,000 miles. However, driving conditions can affect this range. Sticking to highway driving and braking smoothly can help extend the life of your brake pads, while towing heavy loads or frequently riding your brakes can shorten it.
  • Can brake fluid leak when my Leaf is off? Your Leaf brake system is a closed hydraulic system, which means that the brake fluid should not leak out of the system under normal circumstances. However, over time, the various components of the brake system can wear out or become damaged, which can cause brake fluid to leak out of the system.

Repairing Your Nissan Leaf Drivetrain

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2014 Nissan Leaf drivetrain components Your Nissan could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards.

2014 Nissan Leaf Drivetrain Q&A

  • How do I know if my Nissan drivetrain is damaged? Hear noises toward the back of your Nissan Leaf? See fluid leaking? Having issues turning? These could all be signs of drivetrain damage you don't want to ignore. Take action quickly to catch repairs or replacements before something more severe happens.
  • What causes a Leaf’s malfunction indicator light (MIL) to illuminate?  The malfunction indicator light — also known as the check engine light — on your Leaf can illuminate for a variety of reasons, including engine issues, electrical problems, damaged sensors, transmission problems, misfires, and faulty connections.
  • How concerning is a drivetrain malfunction in my Leaf? A drivetrain malfunction in your Leaf should never be taken lightly. Driving with a malfunctioning drivetrain can put you in danger and lead to further vehicle damage, so it's essential to have a qualified mechanic assess and repair the problem as soon as possible.

Wheel Alignment for 2014 Nissan Leaf

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Nissan Leaf’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. During the service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Nissan intended them to. Bring your 2014 Nissan Leaf in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Nissan’s recommended measurements.

Answers to Nissan Leaf Alignment Questions

  • What can knock my Nissan Leaf out of alignment? Hitting a pothole or curb can alter your wheel alignment. So can general wear and tear over time.
  • When should you get a wheel alignment for your Leaf? Generally, it’s wise to have your alignment looked at around every 6,000 miles or 6 months, whichever happens first. You should check your Leaf owner’s manual to verify Nissan’s suggested interval.
  • Do you need to get your Leaf wheels aligned?  You likely aren't required to get an alignment when you put new tires on your Leaf, but it's a super smart idea! An alignment can help ensure optimal tire wear, fuel efficiency, and handling. Still, you should reference your Leaf owner’s manual for what’s recommended.

Tire Repair for Your 2014 Nissan Leaf

If your 2014 Nissan Leaf is in need of a tire inspection or possible flat tire repair, Firestone Complete Auto Care has your back. In some cases, a tire doesn’t have to be replaced – it can be plugged and patched with a simple repair. Depending on the damage, though, a repair might not be the right move. Our technicians can determine which option is best for your situation. We’ll begin by taking a look at where the damage is, the type and extent of the tire damage, and how all of your tires are wearing.

If we determine that your 2014 Nissan Leaf tire can be safely repaired, the repair process is actually fairly simple: (1) Separate the tire from the vehicle wheel, (2) fill in the area that’s been punctured to prevent damage from moisture, and (3) seal the inner liner with a repair unit to prevent air loss.

Your Questions About Nissan Leaf Tire Repair, Answered

  • How soon should I have my flat tire repaired? Driving on a flat tire is not a good idea. Your Leaf engine will keep running with a flat tire, but you could damage your wheel by continuing to drive on a flat.
  • Can I use an emergency/temporary sealant to 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 can cause Leaf tires to keep losing air? Tire punctures, damaged wheels, and leaking valve stems are possible reasons for your Leaf tires continuously losing air.

Top Nissan LeafCar Battery Questions

  • Why won’t my Nissan Leaf 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.
  • What is the white, crusty stuff around my Leaf’s battery post?  The white, flaky stuff that can build up around your Leaf’s battery terminals is known as corrosion. Acid leaking from your vehicle’s battery post can have a chemical reaction with the air, leading to an accumulation of the white, powdery substance over time. Corrosion can affect the flow of electricity between your battery and the electrical system in your Leaf, possibly causing issues with electrical performance and starting. If left unaddressed for long enough, it may even cause your battery to prematurely fail.

Suspension Service & Repair for 2014 Nissan Leaf

When you first bought your 2014 Nissan Leaf, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Leaf bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2014 Nissan Leaf, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost.

2014 Nissan Leaf Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What can cause my Nissan Leaf to have a bouncy ride?  If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your Leaf to bounce more than usual.
  • What can cause the front end of my Leaf to dip forward when I apply the brakes?  The forward dip in the front end of your Leaf when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Nissan's 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 2014 Nissan Leaf A/C Service

Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your 2014 Nissan Leaf A/C problems. During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2014 Nissan Leaf’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test.

Let's say we repair your 2014 Nissan Leaf A/C system. We will also perform an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Next, they will evacuate the system according to Nissan's recommendations. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant.

2014 Nissan Leaf A/C System FAQs

  • Why is my Leaf A/C blowing hot air? 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 can cause an A/C system 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 Leaf's A/C system.
  • Why does my vehicle have to be moving for my Leaf’s A/C to work? There could be issues with one or more components in the air conditioning or electrical system. Your Leaf may have a faulty cooling fan or low refrigerant.

Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. 2014 Nissan Leaf transmission issues could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood.

Our technicians are trained to service 2014  Nissan Leaf transmission systems according to vehicle manufacturer recommendations.

Questions About 2014 Nissan Leaf’s Transmission

  • How often does my Leaf transmission fluid need to be checked?  Caring for your Nissan Leaf’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 my Nissan Leaf leak transmission fluid? Yes, your Nissan Leaf can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Leaf 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.
  • Should I avoid driving my Nissan Leaf if there is a transmission fluid leak?  It’s not advisable to drive your Leaf if it’s leaking transmission fluid. Your transmission system needs transmission fluid to function properly, and a leak can lead to significant problems, such as overheating or reduced performance. You might even experience transmission failure.

2014 Nissan Leaf Inspections

Every service performed at Firestone Complete Auto Care includes a multi-point Courtesy Check. To start, one of our technicians will check the battery in your Nissan Leaf to find out how much charge is remaining on it.

Depending on your location, you may be able to complete your vehicle’s safety tests or state inspection at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care. These inspections are governed by state automotive laws and may vary in different locations.

2014 Nissan Leaf Vehicle Inspection Q and A

  • How do I know if I should have an inspection on my Nissan Leaf? It needs a check-up if something feels 'off' to you, the driver. Your Nissan Leaf 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.
  • Help! My 2014 Nissan Leaf failed the state inspection test. Can you get it to pass? 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 is the best time to get a complete vehicle inspection for my Nissan Leaf?  The best time to get a complete vehicle inspection for your Nissan Leaf is before going on a road trip for the peace of mind. Another great time is when something abnormal occurs, and you can't pinpoint the issue. You might notice new dashboard lights, hear strange noises from under the hood, or your steering wheel doesn't feel like it once did.

Radiator Service & Repair for 2014 Nissan Leaf

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2014 Nissan Leaf is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, Nissan recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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 Leaf 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. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that we’ll take excellent care of your 2014 Nissan Leaf at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2014 Nissan Leaf 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.
  • Why is my Leaf overheating?  Your Nissan Leaf engine could overheat due to low coolant, a clogged radiator, a damaged water pump, a malfunctioning cooling fan, or a faulty thermostat.
  • Why does the radiator in my Leaf sound like it’s rumbling or boiling? There could be air pockets in your Leaf’s cooling system. You might also have a clogged radiator or faulty radiator cap (this last one is an easy fix!).
