1996 Nissan Maxima, 183,000 mi, car runs fine, 25 mi/gal. Lately, usually after having driven over 10 miles, car suddenly develops a miss which goes away pretty quickly. Sometimes, it simply stops running...

DID you properly gap the spark plugs?? This will cause misfires and may cause hard or no start conditions. Also inspect all your Ignition coil boots for cracks or oil. Clean them and blow any oils in the spark plug chambers!!

How do I change the spark plugs of my 1996 nissan maxima

Using an Allen/Hex key tool, remove the cover to gain access to spark plug holes. This engine has coils at each plug, so after unplugging the electrical connection, you can use either a Phillips screwdriver or an 8mm socket on an extension to remove the 2 screws securing each coil. Pull out the coil and then use a 5/8" spark plug socket on a 6" extension to remove each spark plug. Gap the new plugs to .040" and apply anti-seize lubricant to the threads. Install each plug, slowly at first, so as not to cross-thread it. Torque the plugs to 18 lb/ft. Apply some dielectric grease to the inside of the spark plug boots and re-install the coils. Plug them all back in and re-install the covers. You're done!
