I have replaced the ignition lock cylinder in my 2000 Nissan Maxima and the car will turn over but not start(no fire)


Have you taken ALL your keys to a dealer,
to see if they have to be reprogrammed,
now you have a different ignition cylinder, etc

Sort of guessing here, but that is what my 3 week old
2014 Nissan Frontier Owners Manual say's

I would call the parts dept & ask

Can't find location of all six spark plugs


The plugs are located below the 6 ignition coils. The three front ignition coils are located underneath the plastic engine cover that has the V6 3000 marking on it. The other three coils are located in the same position, in the other engine head, towards the rear of the engine compartment. They don't have a cover over them. You will have to unbolt and unplug each ignition coils to remove it.
