Having problems with your Nissan Maxima ?

How do you get at the plugs on a 98 Maxima - Maxima Nissan Cars & Trucks

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

Answers :

You need to remove the decorative cover that tells you your motor size then you can access the coils and plugs. Pinch the tab on the coil connector then pull the head off. Each spark plug has one of these, you have to remove them to get at the plugs. Remove the coil retainer screw and pull the coil out of the cylinder head, then use a long extension and plug socket to take the old plugs out, gap the new plugs and reverse the proceedure to install. I hope this helps you out. If you need illustrations. I could e-mail them to you.
