Question about 1997 Infiniti.5 J30

2 Answers

Whats the average price of a tune-up on a 2000 Infiniti I30? I was quoted a price from the dealership of $250 for spark plugs only. Is this right? Can I get it tuned up at a jiffy lube or discount tire or Walmart?

I would check Tires Plus I was quoted around 200.00 for my tune up which is just plugs and spark plug wires but it does involve removing the eshasht manifold to get to the other side of the front wheel drive of this car. It is costing me 350 - 400 for a valve cover gaket and manifold gasket set to be replaced on my 1999 Infinity I 30t. So if you are doing the tune up check your gasket its a ggod time to replace it. I just cant afford a extra 200 right now I am havinbg to replacxe a battery and a tire I have brought my car to tires plus and have had no problems with them I would stay away from wall mart or jiffy lube for that tghey dont do tune ups I dont think but Pep Boys does I wpuld stick with nationwide dealer like tires plus.

Horrible Random misfire in car


This is common issue with Infiniti I30 1999-2001.

When the coil packs fail they burn up components/parts on the engine computer ECU. If the problem gets worse, you will need to replace the ECU or have it rebuilt.

Is your check engine light on?
You might also get code P0505
Technical bulletin also recommends to replace
The Idle Air Control Valve MUST be replaced prior to re-installation of the ECM, or immediate damage to the computer will occur again.

Common Failures:
  • No Start, Hard Start, Engine Stalls
  • Rough Idle, High Idle, or Idle Up and Down
  • Misfire to one or more cylinders
  • No signal to the ignition coils
  • Engine Trouble Codes For Idle Control Valve (IACV)
  • No Communication With Computer
  • Replacing IAC Does Not Fix The Problem

Average price for a tune up for a nissan altima se 3.5 / 6 cyl. I live in Memphis, TN.


Since labor rates and menu price items vary from state to state or town to town even, you best bet is to call three or four of you local repair shops for phone quotes. I would call for dealer quote, a national franchise quote (Goodyear / Firestone / etc.), and a couple of local independent shops. You should then have a good idea of the range of prices that are out there. I wouldn't necessarily go with the most expensive nor would I go with the least expensive but I would make sure they are all quoting you the same spark plugs (I'm pretty sure they are NGK plugs). If you do not have a regular shop ask the shops you call what they offer for warranties, and amenities (rental cars, pick up/drop off services, free coffee, clean waiting area, etc.

I was told that in order to change the spark plugs on my Nissan Maxima, the shop would have to remove the intake manifold to an extra cost of 200.00. Is it necessary to remove the intake manifold to change...


This is possibly true, especially if you have a 6 cylinder. They don't actually remove the whole intake from the motor, there is a section of the intake system that can be removed fairly easily and then the plugs can be accessed. Unfortunately, this design was more to push the price of a tune up higher than a needed design change, at least in my opinion. Since you have to remove that part most people are more inclined to take a vehicle to the dealer to replace spark plugs instead of doing it themselves and as you know, the dealership prices are higher than anywhere else and the mechanics have the same qualifications other mechanics have.Typically no seals need to be replaced when this is done but it does take more time and that is where the dealership makes it's money.
