About 1991 Nissan Pathfinder Tires

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Nissan Pathfinder 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 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 a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Nissan Pathfinder tires online.

1991 Nissan Pathfinder Tire Q&A

  • 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 Pathfinder tires. Grab a penny.

When your car has an alignment service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Nissan intended. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1991 Nissan Pathfinder, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Nissan recommendations.

Questions About Nissan Pathfinder Alignment

  • Are there road conditions that can hurt my Nissan Pathfinder alignment? When it’s safe to do so, avoid driving over potholes or hitting curbs. These road obstacles can wreak havoc on your wheel alignment, as can wear and tear from rough road conditions.
  • When should you get a wheel alignment for your Pathfinder? Generally, it’s wise to have your alignment looked at around every 6,000 miles or 6 months, whichever happens first. You should check your Pathfinder owner’s manual to verify Nissan’s suggested interval.
  • Does getting new Pathfinder tires mean you need an alignment? It’s likely not a requirement to get an alignment when you install new tires on your Pathfinder, 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 1991 Nissan Pathfinder Engines

  • Why does my Nissan engine sound different?  Strange under-the-hood noises can point to problems within your Nissan Pathfinder engine. Tapping or knocking could mean you need an oil change. Whistling sounds could mean you have an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing may be caused by a loose fan belt, and grinding could be a sign that something is wrong with your brakes — not the engine.

Frequently Asked Nissan Pathfinder Tire Repair Questions

  • What happens if 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 Pathfinder as little as possible to reduce your risk of damage to the wheels and alignment – or further damage to that already struggling tire!
  • 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.
  • Why do the tires on my Pathfinder keep losing air? Tire punctures, damaged wheels, and leaking valve stems are possible reasons for your Pathfinder tires continuously losing air.

Answers to Your Nissan Pathfinder Car Battery Questions

  • Why won’t my Nissan Pathfinder battery hold a charge?  A battery that won't hold a charge is almost as good as dead. The battery might be old. Or, you may have a habit of leaving your car doors open and the lights on overnight. Stop by for a free battery test at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to learn more about the state of your battery.
  • How long can I expect my car battery to last? The typical 12-volt car battery may last three to five years, depending on the type of battery, the driving conditions, and how well the battery is maintained.
  • Why is there white, crusty buildup on my Pathfinder’s battery post?  If you notice white, crusty stuff around the battery terminals of your Pathfinder, 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 Pathfinder’s electrical system, potentially leading to poor performance, difficulty starting, and other issues.

1991 Nissan Pathfinder Oil Change Service

Nissan recommends changing your 1991 Pathfinder’s oil at regular intervals. Outside of Nissan-recommended oil change intervals, your Pathfinder may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, 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 1991 Nissan Pathfinder motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1991 Nissan Pathfinder Oil Change Q&A

  • What does it mean if my Nissan Pathfinder oil light comes on?  Your Nissan Pathfinder 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 oil on my own?  First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also helps your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Pathfinder exhaust smoke grayish or blue?  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.

1991 Nissan Pathfinder Tune-Up & Engine Service

Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Pathfinder.

The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Pathfinder. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 Pathfinder's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Pathfinder'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.

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

1991 Nissan Pathfinder Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Nissan Pathfinder 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Nissan Pathfinder? 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 often do Nissan Pathfinder 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.

1991 Pathfinder Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

When you first drove your 1991 Nissan Pathfinder, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Pathfinder feels bouncy, 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 1991 Nissan Pathfinder, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Pathfinder suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work.

1991 Pathfinder Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Why does my Nissan Pathfinder bounce 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 Pathfinder tilt forward when I hit the brakes?  The forward momentum and weight transfer to the front wheels during braking can cause your Pathfinder'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 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.

A/C Service for Your 1991 Nissan Pathfinder

Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your 1991 Nissan Pathfinder A/C problems. In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 1991 Nissan Pathfinder A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed. We’ll test overall system performance, check for any leaks, and measure the system pressure.

When we perform an A/C repair on your 1991 Nissan Pathfinder, 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. Finally, we’ll recharge the A/C system with new refrigerant.

1991 Nissan Pathfinder A/C System FAQs

  • What’s making my Pathfinder 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.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your Pathfinder’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
  • Why does my vehicle have to be moving for my Pathfinder’s A/C to work?  If your A/C only works when the vehicle is moving, there could be a problem with part of your Pathfinder’s A/C or electrical system. Potential issues include low coolant or a faulty cooling fan.

Transmission Services for 1991 Nissan Pathfinder

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. 1991 Nissan Pathfinder transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Nissan Pathfinder transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Pathfinder at all. Our expert techs are familiar with 1991 Pathfinder 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 diagnose, treat, and prevent major transmission issues.

1991 Nissan Pathfinder Transmission Questions & Answers

  • Does my Pathfinder's transmission fluid need to be inspected?  Caring for your Nissan Pathfinder’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 Nissan Pathfinder transmission fluid leak?  Yes. Nissan Pathfinder transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.
  • Can I still drive my Nissan Pathfinder if it has a transmission fluid leak?  You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your Pathfinder to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.

When you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care for any service, we’ll automatically do a multi-point Courtesy Check.
