Question about 2003 Nissan Altima
I think the problem here is that either the plug gap is too wide causing the coil to overheat by having to jump a excessive gap or its the position on the engine ,now i have to be carefull here what i answer as other experts mock me for some of my solutions like using manual cables and drilling holes in the bellhousing to lock the flywheel but providing the plug gap is 25th ,yes i know about modern engines using a wider gap but iam old school and if its too wide with these modern engines the excessive gap will cause the coil to work overtime but if the gap is right then check the coil supply voltage as if its too high on this particular cylinder for some obscure reason caused by the computer then this is out of my league and you would need the dealer plug in software to locate the problem but if its just packing up due to its location on the engine then my favourite thing and yes i do know i will be well ribbed for this and thats to leave the cover off the top of the engine for more air flow and then strap a 12v computer cooling fan to the top of the coil with a piece of thin fence wire ,plastic tie could stretch with the heat ,and wire it into the ignition on side of a fuse or the ignition switch and this should keep it cool and stop it from melting ,its a trick i do often with electronic components thats bolted to the engine and they can run hot ,like voltage regulators on motor bikes and ECU units bolted to the manifold like in the opel models and even onto the backs of alternators that are mounted by the exhaust manifold .

The oil filter is located behind the right (passenger) inner fender cover. It is right next to the crankshaft pulley at the bottom of the front of the engine facing toward the right front wheel. I do not have a picture at this time.
Hope this is helpful!

HEY WHATS UP BRO this is what you have to do i just got brand new headlight replacements for my 05 nissan altima and it looks great by the way if you replace one you should just do both becasue it will look weird. anyways i have an hid kit as well but so. what you have to do is remove the bumper take all the plastic screw things off the top and on the botton underneith the bumber then you remove 2 screws on each side of the bumper they are located kinda in the dender well then you unscrew those then you can pretty much pull the bumper off there are 4 screws holding on each headlight 2 on top one on the side and one on the bottom front in order to remove the headlight you have to take off the bumper. hope this helps oh ya and buy buy the way you should get an hid kit the bulbe size for the altima is an h1 bulb and you need to get the single beam buld. get it at xenoneyes.com and the the 6000k. The 6000k look the best and is the brightest trust me you wont be let down they are brighter and last longer than the standard halogen bulb um also and like 5 times brighter. they are 129$ at xenoneyes.com thats the cheapest price that i have seen and they are a great value and good quality just dont touch the bulb. oh ya if you replace one headlight do both it looks much better. maybe try this web site to show you a little bit of how to do it
hope this helps my email is firstname.lastname@example.org let me know how it comes out

Don't look at the color boxes on the box ratings they will get you mixed up. On the inside of the
tailgait assembly there's two plastics one grey and one yellow. They have nothing to do with the
replacement of the bulb, read directions carefully.

you have to remove the bulbs from inside of the hood in the engine compartment. in some cars you have to remove some "pins' and remove the entire headlight assembly.. You then remove the holder where the lightbulb is located and replace the bulb.

It is small and round (2 wire connector) and located either in the flexiable air intake hose to the engine or in the engine air filter housing.
