It take myself, a Nissan technician about 45 minutes to do. That's after doing them about 10 or so times.

They require patience, locking 6" extension if you have one. A flex head spark plug socket and a decent ratchet.

Nissan xterra 01 wont staet replaced fuel pump fuel filter added gas etc it turns over byt wont start


Sounds like you'll need to check to see if it is getting spark first. To do this, take one of the spark plugs out, and while it's OUT of the vehicle, connect it to the proper spark plug wire from the car. Get an insulated pair of pliers or gloves and hold the spark tip close to a piece of metal while someone else cranks the motor over. Watch for a spark, if there is no spark there, try replacing the spark plugs first. If there's still no spark after replacing the plugs, then move on to replacing the distributor cap OR the coil packs(it has one or the other).

I have a nissan xterra and putting up a code saying multi missfire what can it be


More than likely it's your spark plugs, plug wires or distributor cap. I would just replace them all due to the age of the vehicle and this should fix your problem. Cheap and easy fix. Should only take 30 min or less but the back plug can be a pain so make sure you use a spark plug socket.

I am replacing the distributor on a 2000 nissan xterra v6cyl 4wd my question is how to tell if i have the #1 piston in the up position


Pull # 1 spark plug, install compression gauge or somehow block hole and jog engine until you feel or record compression, then line up TDC marks on crank pulley. Now when you drop distributor in, rotor should line up with # 1 spark plug wire tab under cap. Make sure you have all ignition spark disconnected, one way or another. If you haven't pulled other distributor yet, it should be easier, just mark housing for reference, jog until rotor is at # 1 tab, remove old one and re-install new in same position.

Hi I have a 2001 Xterra, Manual, 213,000, runs rough at random


If your mechanic changed the spark plugs. Make sure he did a few things.

First make sure he used NGK plugs. I have seen other make plugs cause running conditions.

The other thing is make sure plug number 6 was changed. I can not tell you how many times I have seen shops leave that one cause it's to hard. That also can give you the ruff condition.

Last but not least, if the distributor cap and rotor and wires were not replaced, it may be possible that you could have a spark issue being loss. If you notice it more when conditions are wet, then it has to be related to those items.

Thanks Jay!

2000 nissan xterra knock senor and plug 5


Have you changed all the plugs to platinum and wires? My xterra was doing that and I changed all of them and now it runs great. Also, I changed the distribitor cap and rotor button.

Spark Plugs


It is very difficult to change it is all done by feel as you cannot see it. You need to pull the wire off and "remember" the path it took to come out as this is the way you will have to remove and install the plug and put back the wire. Also, be very mindfull while installing the plug because it can be stripped out fairly easy if your not carefull. Good luck.
