Nissan Spark Plug Questions

The spark plug was first introduced in automobiles in 1903. These insulated plugs are added to the engine’s cylinder head and delivers the spark that ignites the right amount of air and fuel in the combustion chamber. Sparks plugs divert heat from the combustion chamber. If you are looking to install or remove your Nissan spark plugs you should get technical assistance. Read below where Experts have answered specific questions on Nissan spark plugs.

How does one remove and install spark plugs on a 2005 Nissan Maxima?

To remove the spark plugs first remove the engine cover using a power tool and drain the engine coolant. You then need to disconnect the mass air flow sensor electrical connector and remove the air cleaner assembly and air intake tubes. Remove the intake manifold collector, gasket, and electric throttle control actuator. After this remove the six ignition coils.. Proceed to remove the six spark plugs using a suitable tool. Installation is in the reverse order of removal.

Why is the check engine light of a 2005 Nissan Maxima blinking on an off?

A blinking check engine light usually indicates an engine misfire. Check the spark plugs for a defective plug or an incorrect gap. See what code gets thrown up to isolate the problem. If you have a P0300 code then it means there is a misfire in the # 2 cylinder. If you have a P0726 code it indicates an issue with the crank sensor. Not attending to the engine misfire right away could damage the catalytic converter.

Where are the spark plugs located on a 1996 Nissan i30?

The spark plugs are located under the coils. They are on the front bank of the engine closest to the radiator and are under a silver plastic trim that are held down with 3 allen headed bolts. On the back bank they are in between the intake runners.

What does a P01320 code indicate on a 2001 Nissan Pathfinder?

A P01320 code is an ignition primary code. When the code is generated without a cylinder misfire code, you usually have to replace all six coils. The coils have to be replaced because of the internal resistance in the coils. One coil causes a resistance problem in all the other coils. Also make sure that when replacing the spark plugs you use NGK platinum spark plugs.

Why is there oil in the spark plug tube of a 2004 Nissan Murano?

In most cases when oil is found in the spark plug galley it indicates some issue with the valve cover seal around the spark plug tube. The seal is part of the valve cover and will need to be replaced. The oil in the spark plug galley can drown the spark plug and can cause a misfire. To isolate which cylinder is misfiring you need to unplug each coil individually and see if there is any change in the way the cylinder is running.

Inspecting your spark plugs regularly can save you from major engine problems. If you are facing issues with Nissan spark plugs and require assistance you should contact an Expert.
