Remove the passenger side seat (4 bolts) and the trim panel that holds the carpet down at the bottom of the doorframe. then pull the carpet back. This will expose the right-side engine access panel. Unbolt the panel (8-10 bolts), remove it, and you will see a black cover with 3 10 mm bolts in it. remove the bolts and shield, then the plug wires and the spark plugs are exposed. at this point its just a matter of getting the correct plugs and a 16mm spark plug socket with about a 10" extension and a ratchet. remove and replace the plugs as you would in any engine.

How do you install spark plugs on a 96 nissan maxima?

A 96 maxima does not have "a distributor" it has 6 individual distributors or coil packs. One for each cylinder/spark plug. They are on the top side of the spark plugs.

There are seven spark plugs on a '96 Tercel. This model has them mounted under the rear passenger seat next to the distributor.

Most likely it needs new spark-plugs.

the easiest way to change the spark plugs on either side of hte engine is to either put it up on a car lift or pull it up onto some ramps but i recommend using a lift

I just put Denso Iridium spark plugs in mine (part #IK16): http://www.densoiridium.com/index.php But these are by no means the only kind of spark plugs you can use. Before these I had SplitFire Platinum.

Check the Vehicle Emissions Control Information ( VECI ) decal located in the front of your engine compartment ( it will show the type of spark plugs to use and the spark plug gap )

The exat location of the spark plugs depends on whether you have a 3.0 DOHC 24 valve engine or a 3.0 OHV 12 valve engine. Follow the spark plug wires, which are the large grey colored electrical wires you see near the top of the engine. They will lead you right to the spark plugs.

check the coil pack. and look for an internal oil leak either thro the piston rings head gasket or valve guides

User Avatar

Because that is where the oil is coming from, it's nothing to do with the distributor. There are o rings between the valve cover and engine in each spark plug hole. It is good practice to replace all the gaskets at once, they come in a kit.

The spark plug gap for a 1996 Ford Escort with a 1.9L engine should be between .052 and .056 inches. Spark plugs come preset, however, and do not need any adjustments.
