How to change spark plugs on the v6 Nissan 2000 Maxima?

For the 3 spark plugs in front:
1. You would have to remove the plastic protective cover (this cover is silver&red w/ the words "nissan and v6 3000")
2. unplug connector and remove coil (DO NOT mix up the coils, keep the same coils on the same cylinder)
3. Remove spark plug

Rear 3 plugs: located on the rear of the intake (the black pipes atop the engine). there are 3 openings at the rear of the black intake pipes, each opening has a coil mounted.
1. Unplug coil connector and remove coil
2. remove spark plug (you'll need a long extension)
***Installation is reverse, be sure not to over tighten the plugs!! Use anti-seize compound on all the new plugs threading. Hopefully this helps!!

I cant find 3 out of 6 spark plugs on a 3.0 can you help please i found the three up top in the back by the firewall

Hello! The back three plugs are located under the coils much like the front three. 4 mm Allen bolts hold the plastic cover in place.
#2-4-6 are left to right on rear bank. #1-3-5 are left to right on the front. If you are going to change the plugs they come gapped at .042". Use magnetic sockets (8 mm, 10mm) with a 10" extension.
You can make life easier by removing the Purge Control Valve to make access to #6 (two 12mm nuts).

The coils have green sliders that you push to release the coil connectors. Then unbolt the the coils, pull up and out; Walla!!! There are the plugs.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Changing back spark plugs underneath engine cover

I'm fairly certain those motors require the upper intake manifold be removed to gain access to the rear spark plugs. You might be better off bringing it to a qualified technician as it gets fairly involved. If i remember correctly it's about a 2 hour job and requires a few gaskets.

Need to change the stop light for 05 nissan maxima.

Open the trunk, from the inside remove the side trunk liner (by removing the plastic tabs the liner can be pulled back). Once the liner is pulled back you will need to remove two nuts which secure the tail light in place. Once the two nuts are removed you can start pulling the whole tail light assembly out. There are two other tabs that secure the tail light in place which may give you some resistance but the light should come out without too much force once the two nuts are removed.
Once the tail light is out you can change whatever bulbs you need to.

Tune up

You have to remove the plastic cover on the front bank of cylinders and then remove the 3 ignition modules these are recognized by the three wire connector attached to each one then with an 6 inch extension and spark plug socket remove the plugs . The rear set of plugs is about the same only the ignition coils are not covered once you see what the front ones look like you will be able to do the rear ones with no problem
