About 2020 Nissan NV3500 Tires

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new 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 prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. 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.

Tire Repair for Your 2020 Nissan NV3500

If your 2020 Nissan NV3500 is in need of a tire inspection or possible flat tire repair, Firestone Complete Auto Care has your back.

If a repair on your 2020 Nissan NV3500 tire is feasible and safe, we'll follow three basic steps to repair it: (1) Remove the tire from the wheel for inspection and repair, (2) fill in the area that’s been punctured to prevent damage from moisture, and (3) re-seal the inside lining of your tire so that air won’t escape.

Nissan NV3500 Tire Repair Questions

  • What happens if I drive my Nissan on a flat tire? 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.
  • Is temporary sealant bad for my Nissan's tires? A temporary sealant may be able to help you get to a repair location safely. But temporary or emergency sealants could possibly damage TPMS sensors, and in some cases may even void the warranty on your Bridgestone or Firestone tires. If your tire needs extensive repair, sealant can add time and labor costs to the process.

2020 Nissan NV3500 Maintenance Q&A

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.

  • When should I switch my Nissan NV3500 to high mileage oil?  If your Nissan NV3500 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!
  • Can Nissan dashboard warning lights wait?  Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan NV3500 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.

Answers to Your Nissan NV3500 Car Battery Questions

Stop by for a free battery test at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to learn more about the state of your battery.
  • 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 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. This buildup — known as corrosion — can impede the flow of electricity and cause a range of issues, from poor performance to premature battery failure.

2020 Nissan NV3500 Oil Change Service

Nissan recommends changing your 2020 NV3500’s oil at regular intervals. No matter the mileage, your NV3500 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips.

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2020 Nissan NV3500 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult Nissan's recommendations to select the right  2020 NV3500 oil and talk with a teammate to learn more about our oil options: 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.

2020 Nissan NV3500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why is my Nissan NV3500 oil light illuminated?  The oil change light in your Nissan NV3500 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 NV3500 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 NV3500 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.

2020 Nissan NV3500 Tune-Up & Engine Service

Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your NV3500. Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2020 Nissan NV3500. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your NV3500. 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 NV3500. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s 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. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

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

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A for 2020 Nissan NV3500

  • When should Nissan NV3500 spark plugs be replaced?  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 NV3500? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Nissan NV3500. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • How often should I clean my Nissan NV3500 fuel injectors? Factors like fuel type and driving conditions can affect how frequently you need to clean your NV3500 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.

Suspension Service & Repair for 2020 Nissan NV3500

When you first drove your 2020 Nissan NV3500, 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 NV3500 bounces, 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 2020 Nissan NV3500 in for steering and suspension services. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your NV3500 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work.

2020 Nissan NV3500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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.
  • What can cause the front end of my NV3500 to dip forward when I apply the brakes?  As you brake, the forward momentum of your NV3500 combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • 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 2020 Nissan NV3500 A/C Service

Our technicians will work to solve your 2020 Nissan NV3500 A/C problems to the best of their ability. In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2020 Nissan NV3500 A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions for 2020 Nissan NV3500 A/C Systems

  • Why is my NV3500 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 NV3500's A/C system.
  • Why won’t my NV3500’s A/C cool the vehicle when the car is stopped?  A problem with one or more of your air conditioning or electrical system components could cause the A/C to only work when your NV3500 is moving. You may be low on refrigerant, or the cooling fan could be faulty.

2020 Nissan NV3500 Transmission Service

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. 2020 Nissan NV3500 transmission issues could include shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Nissan NV3500 transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your NV3500 isn’t working at all. Our expert techs are familiar with 2020 NV3500 services and perform them according to Nissan-recommended specifications. Schedule an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of transmission problems to help keep your engine running at peak performance.

2020 Nissan NV3500 Transmission Q&A

  • When should I have my NV3500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged?  Caring for your Nissan NV3500’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 NV3500?  Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Nissan NV3500, 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 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.

Questions About Nissan NV3500 Radiators

  • 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 NV3500 to overheat?  One of the main reasons your Nissan NV3500 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 NV3500 radiator sounds like it's rumbling or boiling! What's up? There could be air pockets in your NV3500’s cooling system. You might also have a clogged radiator or faulty radiator cap (this last one is an easy fix!).
