Does anyone have any thoughts on the best Spark plugs to but for the Note 1.4SE? (2006)

I am just about to change mine and noticed within the handbook it has 3 types, Hot, Standard(2 numbers) and Cold. I'm used to going for NGK, but as well as 3 tempertures, what make should I go for or avoid?

thanks

standard plugs are all you need, unless you have the engine tuned in some way

Thanks guys,

I was going to go for the standard as no modifications have been made. But wondered if anyone had used another equivalent like Bosch etc

Hi all.

I need a little assistance, does anyone know how to replace the spark plugs on a 2007 1.4 petrol ?

i've found links for the 1.6 but not the 1.4. also do you need any special tools or just a standard spark plug key ?

Any help would be appreciated

regards

There is an instruction on Youtube are for the 1.6 not the 1.4, it has a different layout.

Fortunately this means changing the sparkplugs isn't as involved with the 1.4.

There is no seperate engine cover but this is an integrated intake filter and throttle valve assembly housing.
Just remove all 8-9 screws that hold this to the valve cover and some other items that are attached to this housing which are pretty much selfexplaining.

Getting the air intake housing off requires some force since the connection to the intake manifold is made by four tubes which are tightly sealed with rubber grommets.

After making sure you have all the bolts removed gently pry the intake filter housing upwards without using screw drivers etc if you want to reuse the old gasket and grommets !

The whole assembly consists of a base unit and the housing for the throttle valve which are sealed by one gasket.
If done with care this gasket can be reused or you should order a new one beforehand.
Same holds true for the 4 intake manifold gaskets/grommets.

Next the sparkplug ignition coils are easily removed and the sparkplugs can be accessed in the normal way to change them.

I changed the plugs on my 1.4 Note last year, very simple job nicely described by you Peetey, just be aware that the sod's Law usually applies to simple jobs. After I changed the plugs and started the engine, the engine light would not go off! with a bit of help from forum members and a friendly Nissan technician I eventually got the light to go off by disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes. Don't you just love working on modern cars

Well I have a OBD2-scanner for those cases :)

I checked the fault codes right away and I was in luck no warning lights or hidden codes...

I thought I'd make a howto because none were out there for the 1.4 and the 1.6 is definately more trouble.

If you know how it should work it's much easier than having to trust to luck or take your time while figuring it out.

Always a good idea to disconnect the battery just for safety but then you have to keep the codes for radios and alike handy !

Most of the time keeping the the car keys away from the ignition switch while engine cables are undone does the trick too.

And making sure everthing is hooked back up before you turn the ignition key to the ON position.........
