I know the manual says not to replace them, but I think I do. I have a gap tool, just need to know what size the gap has to be. Can’t seem to find it anywhere. Thanks.
NGK Platinum spark plugs are pregapped do not tap on the ground electrode use the bender on the gap tool. .044″ Is where the spark plugs are factory gapped NGK plugs in Nissan Boxes are the best. Do not even think of using any other brand. Wrong internal resistors may cause the coils to fail. Stock spark plugs last a long time 60,000 miles so proper installation is important. Make sure the plugs are torqued to around 15 to 19 foot pounds. NGK plugs are Nickel plated to prevent threads from sticking.
Spark Plug Gap
For your 2001 Nissan/Datsun Maxima 3.0L SFI DOHC :
.044 (In thousandths of an inch)
Caution! Gap is not adjustable on certain plug brands
Found at autozone web site 1.0mm =0.041 ” 1.1mm appox 0.044 look on engine sticker under hood to verify
If you can find pre-gapped spark plugs for your car do that, I know they exist but no car I have ever changed them on came pre gapped. This is what a quick google search turned up. Spark plug gap for the 2.3L millercycle KJ engine is .028″-.031″ Spark plug gap for the 2.5L KL engine is .039″-.042″
i have a set of ngk and they dont have to be gapped either
just another option
go to autozone and ask for NGK’s they already gapped right so don’t worry
Perhaps, but I’m not 100% on it
Whenever I post a question, even if it’s the easiest one, they can’t offer me a proper informed answer on this website. Wtf happened to people that really make the effort to write an answer?
look on the front of the car under the hood it should tell you
