Tools : Socket Wrench
Socket Wrench Extentions
Sparkplug Wrench Attachment
8mm Socket
12mm Deep Socket
4mm Hex Tool
Phillips Screwdriver (Optional)
A Bowl(cereal bowl)*to keep all the screws and washers or anything small from going to far from you A box top(from a paper box or file box)*keep coil packs away from dirt or anything to dirty them

For a Maxima 4th Gen (95-99) i personally, and it is recommended, use NGK' Spark Plugs. Could go to your autozone/kregans/Napa etc to get them. BKR5EIX-11 you can use those its a bit pricey but they last a little longer and a bit of better spark. If not BKR5EGP will work okay to. You really don't want to use cheaper ones because of faster waste on spark plugs. Get also some additive for the spark plugs so they don't stick. you can ask them at the auto part store to show you it or if they have a small kinda sample bag. Once you get ready and your car is not hot anymore your going to pop of the lid where it says Nissan V6 3000etc. it comes off with the hex 4mm tool. Under there you will find 3 of the coil packs. your going to need the 8mm to take it off. Be sure to be real careful with the removal of them because they are not sensitive but they will cost you a pretty penny if you do loose them. Make sure you keep them in the same order you took them off (for example 1 the one to the right, keep the coil pack on the right so it is put back in the same spot.) Then after the removal get a flash light and see if any rubbers came of from the coil pack or if there is anything possibly stuck there. If there is get a metal hanger bend it and shape to take off if needed a "bootleg" tool. Once the coil pack is off and its clear take the socket wrench and the extension, should be a really long one i forgot exactly the size but should be at least a foot long, and attach the right size spark plug socket, when searching for the socket at the auto part store just when the spark plug is given take it and go to the location of tools and figure the right size(i recommend the ones called spark plug socket because they have a magnet so it wont loosen up or a type of rubber to keep it snug), then slowly take out the spark plug. Repeat for those 3 and put back in, after also putting the application for the spark plug, and make sure they are tight but not as tight as if you do not want to remove them, then put back to cover then onto the next 3. Max sure you put all the screws on and etc. the next 3 are found in the far back part of the engine. They are not the 3 that are close to the cover you removed. Do the same steps and make sure you don't lose screws or anything that will end up making you look for at night.

Hi, first thing I'd check would be the fuel filter to make sure it's not restricted, then maybe sparkplugs etc, hope this gets you going :)

Hi my nissan maxima has problem

The oxygen sensors in the exhaust pipe are saying the fuel/air ratio is too lean. This commonly happens when the computer in the car reached it's limit putting out the most fuel. Therefore, the mix ratio is still lean.
The possible problem maybe:
The fuel pump not puting out enough pressure.
The fuel filter maybe clogged
The fuel injector maybe clogged or needs to be cleaned.

Were there anymore trouble codes besides the two from Autozone?
