2014 Nissan Sentra Tire Information

Other than getting the proper tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Nissan Sentra tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. 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!) It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set 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!

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. Browse Nissan Sentra tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you.

2014 Nissan Sentra Tire Q&A

  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Nissan Sentra 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 Sentra 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 Sentra tires.

2014 Nissan Sentra Brake Repair

You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Nissan  Sentra. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power.

Nissan Sentra Brakes Questions

Schedule a free brake inspection at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help diagnosing your brake issue.
  • How long should my Sentra brake pads last? You can usually get around 30,000 to 40,000 miles out of your brake pads, but how and where you drive your Sentra can affect this. Hauling large loads or riding your brakes can shorten their lifespan, while smoothly braking and mostly sticking to highways can help your brake pads last longer.
  • Does brake fluid leak when the car is off? Because your Sentra brake system is a closed hydraulic system, it should not leak brake fluid. However, if components in your brake system have worn out or been damaged, it might cause brake fluid to leak.

  • How do I know if my Nissan drivetrain is damaged? Noises toward the back of your Nissan Sentra, leaking fluid, trouble turning — these could all be signs of drivetrain damage you want to address. Take action before something more severe happens.
  • Why is the malfunction indicator light (MIL) on in my Sentra?  The malfunction indicator light — also known as the check engine light — on your Sentra can illuminate for a variety of reasons, including engine issues, electrical problems, damaged sensors, transmission problems, misfires, and faulty connections.
  • How concerning is a drivetrain malfunction in my Sentra? Don't ignore a drivetrain malfunction in your Sentra. As soon as you notice a problem, have it checked by a professional mechanic to diagnose the issue and carry out any necessary repairs. Driving with a faulty drivetrain is risky and may further damage your Sentra.

2014 Nissan Sentra Alignment Services

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Nissan Sentra's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Nissan. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. Bring your 2014 Nissan Sentra in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Nissan’s recommended measurements.

Nissan Sentra Alignment Questions

  • What can knock my Nissan Sentra out of 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.
  • How frequently should you get a wheel alignment for your Sentra? 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 Sentra owner’s manual to verify Nissan’s suggested interval.
  • Do you need to get your Sentra wheels aligned?  You likely aren't required to get an alignment when you put new tires on your Sentra, but it's a super smart idea! An alignment can help ensure optimal tire wear, fuel efficiency, and handling. Still, you should reference your Sentra owner’s manual for what’s recommended.

Engine Q&A 2014 Nissan Sentra

  • Why does my Sentra’s check engine light come on when I start it? It’s usually normal for your check engine light to turn on upon ignition. This is just your Sentra testing its circuits. The dash light shouldn't stay on. If it does, you might want to bring your vehicle in for service.
  • Are Nissan Sentra engine noises bad? Strange engine sounds can be a sign something’s off in your Nissan Sentra. 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 a Nissan engine? Certain driving habits can damage your engine and should be avoided. These habits include 'running on fumes,' revving the engine while still in Park, or pushing 'the pedal to the metal' before the engine has warmed up. Help sustain your engine’s performance and efficiency by staying miles away from these bad driving practices.

2014 Nissan Sentra Tire Repair

If the road has been rough on your 2014 Nissan Sentra 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.

If your 2014 Nissan Sentra tire puncture can be repaired, the repair process is actually fairly simple: (1) Take the tire off the wheel for easy inspection, (2) fill in the area that’s been punctured to prevent damage from moisture, and (3) secure and seal the inner tire liner to ensure the tire is airtight.

Nissan Sentra 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 Sentra 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? Temporary sealants will solve your problem… for a little bit. If you’ve seen temporary or emergency tire sealant before (it usually comes in a can), it can be tempting to turn to this as a solution for your flat tire. Keep in mind that these fixes could buy you some time to get to Firestone Complete Auto Care for a proper repair, but they could also cause some harm in the process (for example, damage to your TPMS). Plus, using a product like this could void your tire warranty.
  • Why do my Sentra tires keep losing air? Your Sentra tires might keep losing air due to a leaking valve stem, puncture or hole in the tire tread or sidewall, or damaged wheel.

2014 Nissan Sentra Maintenance Q&A

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Nissan Sentra? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2014 Sentra is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Nissan Sentra?  Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Nissan Sentra engines.
  • Why are my Nissan dashboard lights on?  It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Nissan Sentra, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light.

Top Nissan SentraCar Battery Questions

  • Why won't my Nissan Sentra 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?  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 Sentra’s battery post?  The white, crusty stuff that can accumulate around Sentra car battery terminals is called corrosion. It is caused by a chemical reaction between the battery acid and the air, which creates a white, powdery substance that can build up on the terminals over time. Corrosion can interfere with the flow of electricity between the battery post and the car's electrical system, sometimes leading to poor electrical performance, difficulty starting, and even premature battery failure.

Oil Changes for 2014 Nissan Sentra

Nissan recommends having your 2014 Nissan Sentra’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. No matter the mileage, your Sentra 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 car, 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 long distances at low speeds.

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Nissan Sentra. Consult Nissan's recommendations to select the right  2014 Sentra 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. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Sentra’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. Let the experts take care of your Sentra’s engine by making an oil change appointment today.

2014 Nissan Sentra Oil Change Q&A

  • Why is the oil light on in my Nissan Sentra?  Your Nissan Sentra 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?  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 Sentra exhaust smoke grayish 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.

2014 Nissan Sentra Tune-Up & Engine Service

Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Sentra. Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Nissan Sentra 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Sentra. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 Sentra. 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 Sentra can determine what kind of service it 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A for 2014 Nissan Sentra

  • When should Nissan Sentra 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 does a puddle underneath my Nissan Sentra mean? 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 Sentra 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.

2014 Sentra Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

When you first bought your 2014 Nissan Sentra, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Sentra feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2014 Nissan Sentra in for suspension and steering service. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Sentra suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work.

2014 Sentra Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What can cause my Nissan Sentra to have a bouncy ride?  Excessive bouncing in your Nissan Sentra 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.
  • Why does my Sentra tilt forward when I hit the brakes?  As you brake, the forward momentum of your Sentra 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.
  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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.

Convenient & Local 2014 Nissan Sentra A/C Service

Technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care are ready to help you address your 2014 Nissan Sentra A/C problems. In this A/C performance inspection, we’ll check out the current condition of your 2014 Nissan Sentra A/C system to determine whether repair work is needed.

To finish, we’ll add new refrigerant to recharge the A/C system.

2014 Nissan Sentra A/C System FAQs

  • What’s making my Sentra 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?  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 Sentra's A/C system.
  • Why won’t my Sentra’s A/C cool the vehicle when the car is stopped? There could be issues with one or more components in the air conditioning or electrical system. Your Sentra may have a faulty cooling fan or low refrigerant.

Questions About 2014 Nissan Sentra’s Transmission

  • Does my Sentra's transmission fluid need to be inspected?  Regularly checking and exchanging your 2014 Sentra’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 transmission fluid leak from my Nissan Sentra?  Yes. Nissan Sentra 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 Sentra if it has 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.
