Remove the front five by removing the boots using a boot-puller and then removing the plug.

The 6th plug at the rear of the engine is difficult to get out. You will need to remove the intake to accomplish that task.

Dealers charge a pretty penny for this "service" though it would not cost more than a few dollars if the vehicle had been better designed. A ten minute job turns into an afternoon here.

Good luck.

SOURCE: removel of altanator on 2001 nissan pathfinder

Disconnect the battery - both positive and negative terminals and remove battery from holder (better access that way). From underneath - remove the plastic shield underneath the front of the car. It is held on by a few bolts. Remove the upper radiator hose (some coolant will drain out). Also free the cable from the support bracket on the top of the platic fan housing. There is an overflow hose that is also clipped to the fan housing unlcip the hose and move it out of the way. From underneath, push in on the clips and the lower half of the fan housing will come out of the bottom. From the top - remove the two bolts holding the upper part of the fan housing and you should be able to work it out from the top. You should now have better visibility and access to the alternator. Loosen the belt tensioner (from below) and remove the belt. There are two mounting bolts on the alternator, a long one through the alternator and a second on the "dog ear" of the alternator. Once the alternator is free - you can get at the battery cable post and the other wires. The wiring harness can be removed by pressing in on the locking clip. Most difficult is the wiring harness support bracket. A short 10mm wrench can get to it. The alternator is now free but will have to be manipulated forward so that it sits below the fan. Once there - you can reach down from the top, and pull the alternator into the larger gap between the fan blades. While rotating the fan, bring the alternator around with it to the top and it will come out. To reinstall -- do everything in reverse. I recommend replacing the belt so you don;t have to do this again.

I have a 2001 nissan pathfinder that started overheating after changing sparkplugs


Probably an obvious question, but did you check your antifreeze level? If it's good, change the thermostat. If still having issues, your water pump may need to be replaced or radiator cores plugged

I have a 96 nissan maxima. It idles at about 1300 in park and 900 in drive. A friend suggested changing the spark plugs. Does this sound like a solution?


No spark plugs only produce spark to ignite the fuel mixture and do not control idle speed. Run fault codes to determine if there is a sensor fault as it should be idling around 900 rpm at idle and stay close to 900 in drive as the ECM will adjust the idle rpm to compensate for the extra load. Nissan maxima use special plugs that do not need changing

98 nissan pathfinder 3.0 wont start new distribitor no fire


What do you mean "the battery still no fire"?

Do you mean that there is no spark at the spark plug?
Have you pulled out a plug, grounded it and cranked the engine to check to see what colour (if any) the spark is?
If there is no spark at the plug, then either change the plugs if they look to be in very poor condition, or change the coil.
