About 2017 Nissan NV1500 Tires

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Nissan NV1500 tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. 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 winter and one for summer. Other drivers prefer the convenience of all-season tires. They make one trip to the tire shop and they're pretty much ready for rain, light snow, or sun!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. 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. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Nissan NV1500 tires online.

Questions About 2017 Nissan NV1500 Tires

  • Why does Nissan tire inflation matter? The right tire pressure can make all the difference. Proper tire inflation helps increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan! Even a small change in tire pressure can impact your driving.
  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Nissan NV1500? 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.
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Nissan tires? 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 NV1500 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 NV1500 tires.

  • Is it bad if my NV1500 is leaking brake fluid when off? Because your NV1500 brake system is a closed hydraulic system, it should not leak brake fluid. However, if components in your brake system have worn out or been damaged, it might cause brake fluid to leak.

2017 Nissan NV1500 Engine Q&A

  • Why does my NV1500’s check engine light come on when I start it? Generally, your check engine light turning on upon ignition is not a bad thing. It’s just your NV1500 firing up its circuits. The light should turn off in a bit, but come see us if it doesn't.
  • Are Nissan NV1500 engine noises bad? Unusual noises can signal a problem with your Nissan NV1500 engine. Tapping or knocking could mean you're low on oil. Whistling could mean a belt is misaligned or there's an intake leak. Squealing can indicate a loose fan belt, and grinding might be coming from the brakes, not the engine.
  • What could damage a Nissan 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. Protect your engine’s performance and efficiency by distancing yourself from these habits.

Tire Repair for Your 2017 Nissan NV1500

If the road has been rough on your 2017 Nissan NV1500 tires, Firestone Complete Auto Care can help. There’s a chance your tire could be plugged and patched (rather than replaced).

If we determine that your 2017 Nissan NV1500 tire can be safely repaired, we'll follow three basic steps to repair it: (1) Separate the tire from the vehicle wheel, (2) fill the puncture to keep the moisture out, and (3) seal the inner liner with a repair unit to prevent air loss.

Frequently Asked Nissan NV1500 Tire Repair Questions

  • How soon should I have my flat tire repaired? Driving on a flat or underinflated tire can put extra stress on your wheels and alignment. While it’s sometimes necessary to drive a short distance on a flat tire to get to a safe place, don’t take any other trips in your NV1500 until you can have the flat tire repaired or replaced.
  • Is temporary sealant bad for my Nissan's tires? 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.
  • Why do the tires on my NV1500 keep losing air? Your NV1500 tires might keep losing air due to a leaking valve stem, puncture or hole in the tire tread or sidewall, or damaged wheel.

2017 Nissan NV1500 Maintenance Questions

  • When should I have Nissan NV1500 alignment checked?  Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Nissan NV1500?  If your Nissan NV1500 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Why are my Nissan dashboard lights on?  It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Nissan NV1500, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light.

Commonly Asked Nissan NV1500 Battery Questions

  • Why won’t my Nissan NV1500 battery hold a charge? 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.
  • How long can I expect my car battery to last?  A car battery normally lasts three to five years, but this number can vary based on battery type, your driving habits, and battery maintenance.
  • Why is there white, flaky stuff around my NV1500’s battery post?  If you notice white, crusty stuff around the battery terminals of your NV1500, 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 NV1500’s electrical system, potentially leading to poor performance, difficulty starting, and other issues.

2017 Nissan NV1500 Oil Change Service

Nissan recommends changing your 2017 NV1500’s oil at regular intervals. Your NV1500 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2017 Nissan NV1500 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. 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. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your NV1500’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. Make an appointment for an oil change service today and let the oil experts take care of your NV1500's engine.

2017 Nissan NV1500 Oil Change Questions

  • Why is the oil light on in my Nissan NV1500?  The oil change light in your Nissan NV1500 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 oil on my own?  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 NV1500 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke?  Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak.  It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.

Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2017 Nissan NV1500

Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your NV1500’s engine. The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Nissan NV1500 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your NV1500. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your NV1500’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 NV1500: 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.

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

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A for 2017 Nissan NV1500

  • Will it hurt my Nissan NV1500 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 should I do if I see leaks under my NV1500? 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 NV1500 fuel injectors need to be cleaned? The frequency at which car fuel injectors should be cleaned can vary depending on several factors, including the type of fuel used and the driving conditions. Some manufacturers generally recommend a fuel system cleaning as part of your general car maintenance, or as needed based on symptoms of poor fuel system performance.

2017 Nissan NV1500 Suspension Service & Repair

When you first bought your 2017 Nissan NV1500, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your NV1500 jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2017 Nissan NV1500, 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work.

Questions About 2017 Nissan NV1500 Steering & Suspension

  • Why is my Nissan NV1500 bouncing so much?  Excessive bouncing in your Nissan NV1500 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.
  • Why does my NV1500's nose dive down 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?  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.

Convenient & Local 2017 Nissan NV1500 A/C Service

Our technicians will work to solve your 2017 Nissan NV1500 A/C problems to the best of their ability. In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2017 Nissan NV1500 A/C system to evaluate what repairs are necessary (if any). We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure.

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2017 Nissan NV1500, 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. Next, they will evacuate the system according to Nissan's recommendations. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant.

2017 Nissan NV1500 A/C System FAQs

  • What’s making my NV1500 A/C put out warm 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?  Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your NV1500’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 NV1500’s A/C only work when the car is moving?  Damaged or worn components in your NV1500’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 NV1500 Transmission Service & Repairs

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. 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. 2017 Nissan NV1500 transmission issues could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood.

2017 Nissan NV1500 Transmission Q&A

  • Does my NV1500's transmission fluid need to be inspected?  Caring for your Nissan NV1500’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 transmission fluid leak from my Nissan NV1500?  Yes. Nissan NV1500 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.
  • Should I avoid driving my Nissan NV1500 if there is a transmission fluid leak?  It’s not advisable to drive your NV1500 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.

Vehicle Inspection for 2017 Nissan NV1500

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 NV1500 Radiator Service

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2017 Nissan NV1500 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 see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant.

At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Nissan NV1500 cooling system. 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 NV1500 is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Common Nissan NV1500 Radiator Questions

  • What does the coolant light on my Nissan dashboard mean?  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 NV1500 to overheat?  One of the main reasons your Nissan NV1500 engine might overheat is because you don’t have enough coolant. Other causes include a clogged radiator, a damaged cooling fan, a malfunctioning thermostat, or a faulty water pump.
  • My NV1500 radiator sounds like it's rumbling or boiling! What's up? There could be air pockets in your NV1500’s cooling system. You might also have a clogged radiator or faulty radiator cap (this last one is an easy fix!).
