About 2011 Nissan Murano Tires

Other than getting the proper tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Nissan Murano 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 set for winter, one set for summer. 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 Murano.

2011 Nissan Murano Tire Questions

  • Why does Nissan tire inflation matter? A small decrease in tire pressure can have a big impact on your driving. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help improve braking time, increase fuel economy, and boost tire lifespan.
  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Nissan Murano? Your tire sidewall numbers tell you the recommended load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to a tire technician to learn how to read Nissan tire numbers.
  • Is there an easy way to check Nissan tire tread depth? 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 Murano 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.

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 Murano repairs.

  • How long should my Murano 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 Murano is off? Your Murano 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.

  • How often does your Murano need a wheel alignment?  Check your Murano owner's manual for Nissan's recommended interval. It's generally a good idea to check your alignment every 6,000 miles or 6 months, depending on which comes first.
  • Do you need to get your Murano wheels aligned when you get new tires? It’s likely not a requirement to get an alignment when you install new tires on your Murano, but it's a smart idea to do so anyway. An alignment can help ensure even tire wear, smooth handling, and better fuel efficiency.

Questions About 2011 Nissan Murano Engines

  • Are Nissan Murano engine noises bad? Strange engine sounds can be a sign something’s off in your Nissan Murano. 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.
  • What could damage my Nissan Murano engine?  Some driving habits are not so great for your engine. These include driving on a near-empty gas tank, flooring the gas pedal while the car is in Park, or accelerating too quickly, too soon.

Get Your Nissan Murano Tire Repaired

If the road has been rough on your 2011 Nissan Murano tires, Firestone Complete Auto Care can help. Our tire technicians can determine whether it's safe to plug and patch the tire, or whether it needs to be replaced. We'll start by evaluating the state of wear, the location of damage, type of damage, and the size of the damage.

Frequently Asked Nissan Murano Tire Repair Questions

  • Can I drive my Nissan on a flat tire? A flat tire that’s not addressed can take a terrible toll on the rest of your car. Until you have it repaired or replaced, drive your Murano as little as possible to reduce your risk of damage to the wheels and alignment – or further damage to that already struggling tire!
  • 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 Murano tires to keep losing air?  If your Murano tires are always losing air, you may have a puncture, damaged wheel, or leaking valve stem.

Commonly Asked Nissan Murano Battery Questions

  • Why doesn’t my Nissan Murano battery stay charged? A battery is in its final hour when it will no longer hold a charge. The battery may be too old. Or, you may have been leaving your car doors ajar and the cabin light at night. Stop by for a complimentary battery check at your favorite Firestone Complete Auto Care and get a handle on your car battery’s health.
  • What is the average lifespan of a car battery?  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 substance accumulating on my Murano’s battery post?  The white, crusty stuff that can accumulate around Murano 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.

2011 Nissan Murano Oil Changes

Your 2011 Murano’s oil should be changed according to Nissan’s recommended oil change intervals. Your Murano may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change 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, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds.

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2011 Nissan Murano motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. 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 Murano today.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2011 Nissan Murano

  • What can cause the oil light on my Nissan Murano to illuminate?  Your Nissan Murano oil change reminder light might illuminate if it’s been too long since your last oil change. On the other hand, the oil pressure light might illuminate due to a clogged oil filter, a faulty oil pressure sensor, low engine oil levels, or a malfunctioning oil pump.
  • Can I change my Nissan Murano oil at home?  Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Murano spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke?  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.

2011 Nissan Murano Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Murano’s power on the road. Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Nissan Murano engine tune-up services. 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Murano. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your Murano. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Murano's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

*Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate for full terms and conditions on warranties.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A for 2011 Nissan Murano

  • Will it hurt my Nissan Murano 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 Murano 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 Murano need to be cleaned? 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.

Suspension Service & Repair for 2011 Nissan Murano

When you first bought your 2011 Nissan Murano, 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 Murano bounces, pulls 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 2011 Nissan Murano, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work.

2011 Nissan Murano Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What can cause my Nissan Murano to have a bouncy ride?  Excessive bouncing in your Nissan Murano might be due to damaged struts or shocks that are unable to absorb road bumps effectively, causing your vehicle to feel more like a pogo stick than a smooth ride.
  • What can cause the front end of my Murano to dip forward when I apply the brakes?  The forward momentum and weight transfer to the front wheels during braking can cause your Murano's front end to dip forward. A damaged or faulty suspension system may fail to distribute the weight and force effectively, causing the front end to dip even more.
  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Murano'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.

A/C Service for Your 2011 Nissan Murano

Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your 2011 Nissan Murano A/C problems. During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2011 Nissan Murano A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test.

While your 2011 Nissan Murano’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do 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). Then, they’ll use Nissan’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant.

2011 Nissan Murano A/C System FAQs

  • Why do I get hot air from my Murano 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.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak?  Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Murano’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.
  • What is causing my Murano’s A/C to only work when the car is in motion?  A problem with one or more of your air conditioning or electrical system components could cause the A/C to only work when your Murano is moving. You may be low on refrigerant, or the cooling fan could be faulty.

2011 Nissan Murano 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, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Murano’s performance. 2011 Nissan Murano transmission issues could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Nissan Murano transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Murano at all. Our expert techs are familiar with 2011 Murano services and perform them according to Nissan-recommended specifications. As soon as you suspect something’s wrong with your Murano’s transmission, book an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to help keep your engine running at peak performance.

Questions About 2011 Nissan Murano’s Transmission

  • When should I have my Murano's transmission fluid checked or exchanged?  Caring for your Nissan Murano’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 Murano leak transmission fluid?  Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Nissan Murano, 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 Murano if it has 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.

2011 Nissan Murano Inspections

At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we perform a multi-point Courtesy Check during any vehicle service. The technician will begin by testing your Nissan Murano's battery to find out how much charge is remaining on it. The check will continue with a visual inspection of your Nissan Murano's lights, windshield wipers, filters, alignment, tires, hoses, belts and fluid levels.

An inspection can be especially beneficial before a road trip for the simple peace of mind. You can feel confident in your adventure!
