Choosing 2016 Nissan NV3500 Tires

Apart from finding the right tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Nissan NV3500 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 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!

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. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Nissan NV3500 tires online.

When your car has an alignment 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.

  • How often should you get a wheel alignment for your NV3500? It’s usually suggested you check your alignment about every 6,000 miles or 6 months (whichever occurs first). Still, you should reference your NV3500 owner’s manual for Nissan's recommended interval.

Questions About 2016 Nissan NV3500 Engines

  • Why does the check engine light in my NV3500 turn on when I start my car? It's okay if your check engine light comes on when you first start your vehicle. This is a sign that your vehicle is testing its circuits. The light should go off shortly. Bring your vehicle in if it doesn't.
  • Why does my Nissan engine sound different? Strange engine sounds can be a sign something’s off in your Nissan NV3500. 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.
  • Are you unknowingly damaging your Nissan NV3500 engine? Certain driving habits can damage your engine and should be avoided.

Frequently Asked Nissan NV3500 Tire Repair Questions

  • How soon should I have my flat tire repaired? Driving on a flat tire is not a good idea. Your NV3500 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? A temporary sealant may be able to help you get to a repair location safely.

  • What is the white, crusty stuff around my NV3500’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 NV3500 car battery.

You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips.

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Nissan NV3500.

2016 Nissan NV3500 Oil Change Questions

  • Why is the oil light on in my Nissan NV3500?  Your Nissan NV3500 oil change reminder light may come on if you're overdue for an oil change. The oil pressure light will typically come on if the oil level in the engine is too low, the oil pump is failing, you have a clogged oil filter, or there's a faulty oil pressure sensor.
  • Can I change my Nissan NV3500 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 exhaust smoke gray 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 third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your NV3500's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your NV3500 can determine what kind of service it needs. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

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

Questions About 2016 Nissan NV3500 Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Nissan NV3500 spark plugs be replaced?  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 NV3500? 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 NV3500 fuel injectors 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.

2016 Nissan NV3500 Suspension Service & Repair

During the first few years you had your 2016 Nissan NV3500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your NV3500 jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2016 Nissan NV3500 in for steering and suspension services. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your NV3500 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost.

Questions About 2016 Nissan NV3500 Steering & Suspension

  • Why is my Nissan NV3500 bouncing so much? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • Why does my NV3500 front end dip forward when I brake?  The forward momentum and weight transfer to the front wheels during braking can cause your NV3500'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 NV3500's steering and 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 NV3500 A/C Service Near You

Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your 2016 Nissan NV3500 A/C problems. In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2016 Nissan NV3500 A/C system to see if repair work is required. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure.

When we perform an A/C repair on your 2016 Nissan NV3500, 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. Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per Nissan guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant.

Questions About 2016 Nissan NV3500 A/C Systems

  • What’s making my NV3500 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?  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 NV3500's A/C system.
  • What is causing my NV3500’s A/C to only work when the car is in motion? There could be issues with one or more components in the air conditioning or electrical system. Your NV3500 may have a faulty cooling fan or low refrigerant.

2016 Nissan NV3500 Transmission Service & Repairs

Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Nissan NV3500 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Nissan NV3500 transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your NV3500 isn’t working at all. Our technicians are trained to service 2016  Nissan NV3500 transmission systems according to vehicle manufacturer recommendations.

2016 Nissan NV3500 Transmission Questions & Answers

  • When should I have my NV3500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged?  Maintaining your Nissan NV3500 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.
  • Can Nissan NV3500 transmission fluid leak?  Yes. Nissan NV3500 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.
  • Can I still drive my Nissan NV3500 if it has a transmission fluid leak?  Driving your NV3500 with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
