2016 Nissan Quest Tire Information

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Nissan Quest tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. Think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience when evaluating your driving conditions. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets 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!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. 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 Quest tires online.

Installing Nissan Quest Tires

Firestone Complete Auto Care installs more tires on more cars than most other companies. We're your tire shop and a complete service center for tire installation, maintenance, repair, rotation, and alignment! Shop 2016 Nissan Quest tires online and schedule an installation appointment.

Questions About 2016 Nissan Quest Tires

  • Is Nissan tire inflation important? A small decrease in tire pressure can have a big impact on your driving. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help improve braking time, increase fuel economy, and boost tire lifespan.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Nissan Quest tires? The numbers on your tire sidewall give you information about tire speed rating, traction, treadwear, tire size, and load carrying capacity. Chat with a tire technician to learn how to read the numbers on your Nissan tires!
  • Is there an easy way to check Nissan tire tread depth? 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 Quest 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 Quest tires.

2016 Nissan Quest Auto Repair Q&A

Sure, you could skip out on a few recommended maintenance services, but you may pay the price later. Bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care at recommended service intervals to address minor issues before they get out of hand and keep your car running newer, longer.
  • What's wrong if something feels 'off' in my Nissan? No, we’re not talking about finding the best jams on the radio! You know your car best, and you’re the first person who will notice if something doesn’t feel right (like new smells, sights, or sounds coming from your car). If you sense that something is 'off,' stop in for a Courtesy Check to have these symptoms checked out ASAP. Early action could help you prevent Nissan Quest repairs.
  • Do I have to get the repairs you recommend for my Nissan? Talk to your technician. We'll never recommend a service or repair for your 2016 Nissan Quest that we don't think is necessary for your safety.

Brake Repair for Your 2016 Nissan Quest

You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Nissan  Quest. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 2016 Nissan Quest. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.

Answers to Your Quest Brakes Questions

  • Why does my Quest shake when I brake? Feeling shaking or vibrating in your Quest as you brake might indicate a few different problems, including worn brake pads or rotors, loose suspension components, damaged brake calipers, or warped rotors. Book an appointment for a free brake inspection as soon as you notice a problem with your brakes.
  • How long should my Quest brake pads last? Brake pads generally last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Your driving can affect how long your Quest brake pads last, though. For example, mainly driving on highways and gradually braking can help increase the lifespan of your brake pads, and carrying hefty loads or riding your brakes can shorten it.
  • Does brake fluid leak when the car is off? Your Quest has a closed hydraulic brake system, meaning you should not have a brake fluid leak under normal conditions. However, parts of your brake system can wear out over time or become damaged, which can lead to a brake fluid leak.

2016 Nissan Quest Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2016 Nissan Quest drivetrain components Your Nissan Quest may need driveshaft attention if you feel clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards.

Questions About 2016 Nissan Quest

  • How do I know if my Nissan drivetrain is damaged? Hear noises toward the back of your Nissan Quest? See fluid leaking? Having issues turning? These could all be signs of drivetrain damage you don't want to ignore. Take action quickly to catch repairs or replacements before something more severe happens.
  • What causes a Quest’s malfunction indicator light (MIL) to illuminate? A multitude of problems can activate your Quest’s malfunction indicator light (better known as the check engine light), including issues with the engine, transmission, sensors, electrical system, or connectors.
  • How serious is a drivetrain malfunction in my Quest? If your Quest has a drivetrain malfunction, don't wait. Get it checked out by a professional mechanic. Identifying the underlying cause and performing the appropriate repairs right away can help prevent further damage and avoid unsafe driving conditions.

Wheel Alignment for 2016 Nissan Quest

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Nissan Quest’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. 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. Bring your 2016 Nissan Quest in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Nissan recommendations.

Nissan Quest Alignment Questions

  • What can knock my Nissan Quest out of alignment? Potholes and uneven roads can knock your car out of alignment, so stay aware of the road ahead and adjust your speed (or avoid these obstacles whenever it’s safely possible).
  • When should you get a wheel alignment for your Quest? 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 Quest owner’s manual to verify Nissan’s suggested interval.
  • Does getting new Quest tires mean you need an alignment? It’s likely not a requirement to get an alignment when you install new tires on your Quest, but it's a smart idea to do so anyway. An alignment can help ensure even tire wear, smooth handling, and better fuel efficiency.

2016 Nissan Quest Engine Services

If your 2016 Quest engine needs repairs, our technicians will provide you with a thorough explanation beforehand. We make recommendations, but you make the final decision. If a repair can wait, we'll let you know. If it's necessary for your safety, we'll make sure you understand that, too. We want to give you all the details you need to make an informed decision about your engine repairs. Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your 2016 Quest engine repairs and you can feel good knowing that we only use Nissan-compliant replacement parts such as the serpentine belt, oil gasket, fuses, or a different component.

Questions About 2016 Nissan Quest Engines

  • Why does my Quest’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 Quest firing up its circuits. The light should turn off in a bit, but come see us if it doesn't.
  • Are Nissan Quest engine noises bad? Strange engine sounds can be a sign something’s off in your Nissan Quest. 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.
  • What could damage my Nissan Quest engine? Certain driving habits can hurt your engine. These habits include driving on an empty fuel tank, revving your engine while the vehicle is in Park, or slamming the gas pedal while the engine is still cold. Steer clear of these habits to help protect engine performance and efficiency.

Tire Repair for Your 2016 Nissan Quest

If the road has been rough on your 2016 Nissan Quest tires, Firestone Complete Auto Care can help. Our tire technicians can determine whether it's safe to plug and patch the tire, or whether it needs to be replaced. To start, we’ll consider the location of tire damage, the type of issue, the size and scope of the damage, and the amount of wear on your tires.

If your 2016 Nissan Quest tire puncture can be repaired, we'll follow three basic steps to repair it: (1) Remove the tire from the wheel for inspection and repair, (2) use a filler to close up the puncture (this is to keep moisture from getting in), and (3) secure and seal the inner tire liner to ensure the tire is airtight.

Frequently Asked Nissan Quest Tire Repair Questions

  • Can I drive my Nissan on a flat tire? 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 Quest until you can have the flat tire repaired or replaced.
  • Is temporary sealant bad for my Nissan's tires? Fast fixes are a mixed blessing. They’ll help you get your Nissan Quest to Firestone Complete Auto Care, but don’t count on them to keep you on the road for very long. Using a temporary sealant may also void a Bridgestone or Firestone tire warranty.
  • Why do the tires on my Quest keep losing air? Possible reasons for your Quest tires continuously losing air include a leaking valve steam, wheel damage, and a puncture or hole in the rubber.

About 2016 Nissan Quest Scheduled Maintenance

It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Quest maintenance. Just follow your 2016 Nissan Quest maintenance schedule! Nissan knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Quest's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Nissan Quest problems in the future.

2016 Nissan Quest Maintenance Questions

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Nissan Quest?  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 Quest?  Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Nissan Quest? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Nissan Quest to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.

Top Nissan QuestCar Battery Questions

  • Why won't my Nissan Quest battery stay charged?  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 do car batteries 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.
  • What is the white, crusty stuff around my Quest’s battery post?  The white, flaky stuff that can build up around your Quest’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 Quest, 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 Quest Oil Changes

Nissan recommends changing your 2016 Quest’s oil at regular intervals. Your Quest may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. 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 Quest. 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, a technician will change your Quest's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. Make an appointment for an oil change service today and let the oil experts take care of your Quest's engine.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Nissan Quest

  • Why is the oil light on in my Nissan Quest?  The oil change light in your Nissan Quest 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 exhaust smoke gray 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.

2016 Nissan Quest Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Quest’s power on the road. Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Nissan Quest engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your Quest's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 Quest. 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 Quest 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.

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

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A for 2016 Nissan Quest

  • What happens if my Nissan Quest spark plugs fail?  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 does a puddle underneath my Nissan Quest mean? 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 Quest 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.

Suspension Service & Repair for 2016 Nissan Quest

When you first drove your 2016 Nissan Quest, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Quest feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2016 Nissan Quest in for steering and suspension services. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Quest suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work.

Questions About 2016 Nissan Quest Steering & Suspension

  • What can cause my Nissan Quest to have a bouncy ride?  If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your Quest to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my Quest's nose dive down when I hit the brakes?  The forward momentum and weight transfer to the front wheels during braking can cause your Quest'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 Quest's steering and 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.

2016 Nissan Quest A/C Service Near You

Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your 2016 Nissan Quest A/C problems. In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2016 Nissan Quest 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.

Let's say we repair your 2016 Nissan Quest A/C system. We will also perform 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 use Nissan’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant.

2016 Nissan Quest A/C System FAQs

  • Why is my Quest A/C blowing hot air?  An A/C blowing hot air has several possible root causes. There could be an issue with your compressor clutch, a blown fuse, a leak, or a clog in the expansion valve.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak?  Over the years, the rubber seals and gaskets in your Quest’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 vehicle have to be moving for my Quest’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 Quest’s A/C or electrical system. Potential issues include low coolant or a faulty cooling fan.

2016 Nissan Quest Transmission Service & Repairs

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. Nissan Quest transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Nissan Quest transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Quest’s not even driveable. Our technicians are trained to service 2016  Nissan Quest transmission systems according to vehicle manufacturer recommendations. As soon as you suspect something’s wrong with your Quest’s transmission, book an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to help keep your engine running at peak performance.

2016 Nissan Quest Transmission Q&A

  • When should I have my Quest's transmission fluid checked or exchanged?  Regularly checking and exchanging your 2016 Quest’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Nissan's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can my Nissan Quest leak transmission fluid? Yes, your Nissan Quest can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Quest 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 Quest 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.

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

FAQs for 2016 Nissan Quest Vehicle Inspections

  • How do I know if I should have an inspection on my Nissan Quest? It needs a check-up if something feels 'off' to you, the driver. Your Nissan Quest could benefit from a Courtesy Check if it has any illuminated dashboard lights, you hear weird noises coming from any part, the engine doesn't start sometimes, or your vehicle pulls to one side.
  • Can you fix my 2016 Nissan Quest so it will pass a state inspection test? There's a good chance we can. Stop by for a full system inspection and we'll get to the root of the issue.
  • When’s the best time to have a complete vehicle inspection performed on my Nissan Quest?  You should bring your Nissan Quest in for a full vehicle inspection if something weird happens and you can’t find the problem. A new dashboard light might come on, you may hear strange sounds under the hood, or your steering might feel off. A complete inspection is also a great idea before a road trip for added peace of mind.

2016 Nissan Quest Radiator Service

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2016 Nissan Quest is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Nissan recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled 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.

When you come to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we’ll begin your radiator repair with an in-depth inspection of the cooling system in your Nissan Quest. 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. From the radiator cap to the heater core, we’re here to give your 2016 Nissan Quest the top-notch service it needs.

Common Nissan Quest Radiator Questions

  • Why is the coolant light on my Nissan dashboard on?  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.
  • Why is my Quest overheating?  One of the main reasons your Nissan Quest 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.
  • Why does the radiator in my Quest sound like it’s rumbling or boiling?  Air pockets in your Quest’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.
