I dont know how to calibar the spark plug ,or what is the gap,check engine soon light comes on every now and then


We need to know what year and model car you have in order to find what size gap to use. However on most cars (especially newer) there are several small labels on the underside of the hood or near the radiator towards the front of the car with specifications for several systems such as AC and vacuum diagrams and such. On one of these labels are the engine specs, one of these specs is the spark plug gap given in thousandths of an inch eg. spark gap .035. Find this label then go to any part store and buy a spark plug gaper (costs maybe 45 cents). You will notice on the tool a range of numbers, go to the one you want and gap your plug or post the year make and model on this site. Hope this helps.

I can't find where the spark plugs are located?? where are they located at?? please help :(


The spark plugs are mounted in the heads, which are bolted to the top of the engine block.

The Montana has a transverse (sideways) mounted engine, so 3 of the 6 plugs will be toward the radiator, and the other 3 will toward the firewall.

There is a procedure for getting to the rear 3 plugs that requires unbolting the "dogbone" mounts, and rotating the block toward the front of the vehicle to give better access to the rear plugs.

I'd suggest you go to your local auto parts store and purchase a vehicle specific repair manual (Haynes #38036) (Section1-20) which contains detailed instructions on how to accomplish this task.

It's not all that difficult, but be patient!

Above all else, good luck!

I have a 2003 Nissan SL 2.5 4 cylinder Altima. The car was running fine and I purchased some gas and the next day it started vibrating and missing (not accelerating fast/like a hesitation). The guy at the...


Today the guy at the auto parts store hooked it up to a computer and sold me the recommended dealer parts ( a CKP-crankshaft position sensor and vehicle speed sensor).

OK the problem is the CKP and no you dont want to do it yourself, it is a hassle. take the dummy cover off the motor, leaning over the engine take your right hand and basically hug the engine, down on the bottom just before the trans housing is a green and black connector. press the green connector (in) pull off the connector, now try to get a 10mm small ratchet down ther loosen the bolt (not easy)
take out bolt.
put the connector back on the sensor, twist and pull till it comes out.
the reson for putting it back on is nissan put the connector in the way of the 10mm bolt, you cannot pull it out withthe connector off.
the new sensor is a different updated design, its backwards,
when it goes back in the connector will be turned the opposit direction.
on a 1 -10 scale this is a 10 on the loss of patience a true 6 packer

Leaking water from engine block "freeze plugs ???


That means that you have a rusted out freeze plugs so you can buy a freeze plug that can be screwed into place if you can get to the reeze plug, however if it's behind the exhust maniforl you will have to remove the exhaust manifold to get to them. you will need a short hammer and chisal to knock out the old freeze plug. then a wrench to put in a new freeze plug unless you want to put in standard plugs but it is not easy. the freeze plugs rusting are common for this rig. the Freeze plug that has a threaded nut and bolt and made out of high heat rubber is about $5.00 each and can be bought at any Nappa Auto parts or Advance auto Parts store all complete kit for all of them for the stamped steel is about $10.00 however there is one behind the transmisson and hopefully it is not leaking. If it is leaking th transmisson has to come out. Good luck and if you need help just reply to the e-mail you recieve from this site. Thanks for using fix-ya.

The check engine light just started coming on.


have your alternator and battery check first, it is free at most big chain auto parts stores. Your check engine light system record problems in many sytems, it is also possible to have the auto parts store retrive the code, DO NOT ERRASE THE CODE UNTILL FIXED your mechanic will need them.

How to replace freeze plug G20 van


Most drive into place. To get the old one out drive one part or edge in this will tip the opposite side out. Take hold with a pair of good pliers or vise grips and pull it out. Drive new one into place after putting sealer on the outside edge. It is possible to replce with a rubber expandable plug if it is hard to get to. Talk to your local auto parts store for the best style of plug for your needs.

Where do i put the a/c freon in?


look towards the front of your engine. by the radiator there should be a little metal hose with a small twist cap on it. if you purchase a charge kit from your local auto parts store, it can come with a hose built on, and it will only fit on one connector.

make sure to get one that has a gauge on it tho, you don't want to overfill
