About 2016 Nissan NV2500 Tires

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Nissan NV2500 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!) Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. 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!

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. 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 NV2500.

Questions About 2016 Nissan NV2500 Tires

  • Why check Nissan tire inflation? 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.

  • 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 NV2500 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 NV2500 tires.

Top Nissan NV2500Car Battery Questions

  • Why won't my Nissan NV2500 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.
  • 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.
  • What is the white, crusty stuff around my NV2500’s battery post?  The white, flaky stuff that can build up around your NV2500’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 NV2500, possibly causing issues with electrical performance and starting. If left unaddressed for long enough, it may even cause your battery to prematurely fail.

2016 Nissan NV2500 Oil Changes

Nissan recommends having your 2016 Nissan NV2500’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your NV2500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Nissan if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2016 Nissan NV2500 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Check your owner's manual and talk with a technician to select the right Nissan NV2500 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.

Get professional engine care by making an oil change appointment for your NV2500 today.

2016 Nissan NV2500 Oil Change Q&A

  • What does it mean if my Nissan NV2500 oil light comes on?  Your Nissan NV2500 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 oil on my own?  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 exhaust smoke gray or blue?  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.

2016 Nissan NV2500 Tune-Up & Engine Service

Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your NV2500’s power on the road. Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Nissan NV2500 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 NV2500. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 NV2500’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 NV2500: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

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

2016 Nissan NV2500 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Nissan NV2500 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 NV2500? 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 should I clean my Nissan NV2500 fuel injectors? Factors like fuel type and driving conditions can affect how frequently you need to clean your NV2500 fuel injectors. Some manufacturers recommend a fuel system cleaning as part of routine maintenance, or as needed if your vehicle is showing signs of poor fuel system performance.

2016 NV2500 Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

When you first bought your 2016 Nissan NV2500, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your NV2500 jolts, leans 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 2016 Nissan NV2500, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost.

Questions About 2016 Nissan NV2500 Steering & Suspension

  • Why is my Nissan NV2500 bouncing excessively?  Excessive bouncing in your Nissan NV2500 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 NV2500 to dip forward when I apply 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.
  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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.

2016 Nissan NV2500 A/C Service Near You

Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your 2016 Nissan NV2500 A/C problems. During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 2016 Nissan NV2500’s A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. This check includes a visual inspection, performance test, and pressure and leak test.

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2016 Nissan NV2500, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll use Nissan’s specifications to evacuate the system. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2016 Nissan NV2500 A/C Systems

  • What’s making my NV2500 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 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 NV2500's A/C system.
  • Why does my NV2500’s A/C only work when the car is moving?  A problem with one or more of your air conditioning or electrical system components could cause the A/C to only work when your NV2500 is moving. You may be low on refrigerant, or the cooling fan could be faulty.

2016 Nissan NV2500 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, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away.

Our technicians know how to service your 2016 NV2500 up to Nissan-recommended standards. If you think there’s something wrong with your NV2500’s transmission, schedule an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to help diagnose, treat, and prevent major transmission issues.

2016 Nissan NV2500 Transmission Questions & Answers

  • How often does my NV2500 transmission fluid need to be checked?  Maintaining your Nissan NV2500 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 NV2500? Yes, your Nissan NV2500 can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your NV2500 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.
  • Can I drive my Nissan NV2500 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.

2016 Nissan NV2500 Radiator Repair & Service

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2016 Nissan NV2500 is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Nissan recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad.

2016 Nissan NV2500 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.
  • What is causing my NV2500 to overheat?  If your Nissan NV2500 engine overheats, it could be because of a clogged radiator, a damaged thermostat, a faulty cooling fan, a malfunctioning water pump, or low coolant levels.
  • What can cause a NV2500 radiator to make boiling or rumbling sounds?  Air pockets in your NV2500’s cooling system may cause a rumbling or boiling noise. You could also have a clogged radiator or simply need to replace the radiator cap.
