Default 2000 maxima 3.0 V6 cylinder layout? - 11-19-2007 , 09:41 AM






My 2000 Maxima has a miss in cylinder #4 according to my OBDII reading.
This happens when it is raining, or in today's case, snowing with wet
roads. This car has no distributer, so I can't follow the wires.
What is the cylinder layout of the 3.0 V6?

my guess is #4 is center rear. Each cylinder has its own coil pack
(the ones on the front head are under a cover, just whip out your
allen wrench and it exposes them), which also should have some kind of
seal for the spark plug cavity. Then they have a rigid rubber conduit/
wire thing that goes down to the spark plugs. could have a defective
coil if water is starting to foul them.

cylinders 1 3 and 5 are closest to the fire wall and cylinders 2 4 and 6 are
closest to the radiator.


BTW , replace the coil's. that will fix your problem

Thanks NT. I was worried that #4 was in the rear which is a lot harder
to get at.
