How much are the ' 93, ' 94, ' 95, ' 96, and ' 97models alike?
and are the parts interchangable. can i use parts from a ' 96 infiniti j30 to fix a ' 93 infiniti j30?
specifcally, tie rods, stabilizing links, control arn and bushings, sun roof, exhaust system and steering column?
I've only had experience with struts, running lights, trunk gaskets and various under-hood brackets; so far everything has been interchangeable. It may not look EXACTLY the same, but it fits. Hope it helps!

There will be one on each side of the lower part of the engine on the catalysts, and then there will be two more on the exhaust tubes roughly halfway between the engine and the muffler. You should be able to look at the top of the engine and see four connectors with colored braided wires. They should be white, red, blue and black. You can trace those wires directly to the O2 sensors.
i can find out for you if youd like but the easiest way would be for you to duck down to your local REPCO or alike and ask them, if you get a nice enough guy he will see you require assistance and lend a hand, if not i would change spare part dealer, or alternatively go to your local mech, he will have them on hand and will only take a few secconds and you can learn at the same time, if he charges more than $5 on top of the price of the blades i would change mechanics.
Should not be a problem. Your engine is the VG30DE, which is the same engine in the 90-96 non-turbo 300ZX. On those cars, the alternators were all interchangeable, so I see no problem with using an alternator from a different model year than your car.
On the VG30DE engine (which you have in your car, and which is also found in the 90-96 300ZX, which I own), such a problem is indicative of a failed mass airflow sensor. If the sensor is faulty, the car's computer institutes (in the Z) a 2400 RPM rev limiter to safeguard the engine, as the computer cannot trust the readings from the airflow sensor and is programmed to do this so that an incorrect air/fuel mixture doesn't result, which could damage the engine.
If you know someone else with a J30 of your car's generation, or a 300ZX of model year 90-96, see if you can swap their sensor into your car (I'm not positive that they're interchangeable, but they may be at least for diagnostic purposes).
For future knowledge, it's honestly very rare for the car's computer to go bad - most problems are from other sensors rather than the ECU itself.
It depends on what parts you're thinking of. Some will carry over between years, and some may not. Minor restyling on the exterior and lighting may present some difficulty, and the 96 is an OBD2-emissions controlled engine, so its ECU, engine bay harness, and many sensors may not work on the earlier car (which is the much less-stringent OBD1 emissions control).
Could be....I would first very simply check the gas cap. A loose or cracked gas cap could cause an O2 (oxygen) sensor to react and light up your "check engine" light. if the cap is indeed tight it may be an actual faulty sensor, in which case I would have your ODB plug under the steering wheel read by the infiniti dealer. Devoe infiniti is great here in Naples, FL!
Hope this helps,
