Sorry folks, but this is a little ridiculous... As someone that has looked here for info on my Frontier, I wanted to answer someone's question posted about if you can replace the spark plugs without removing the intake manifold.

The answer is YES! It is easy. It took me about 35-45 minutes. The reason I didn't want to remove the intake manifold are ,

A. I didn't want to risk causing an intake vacuum leak.
B. I just bought this vehicle and didn't want to void the extended warranty.

I just wanted to add this for the benefit of people. I do not want to spend a lot of time here "chatting" with people...

It is below.

I finally watched the video to see how you did the spark plug - thanks for sharing. I'll be honest here, I fast forwarded through several minutes of you "chatting" to get to the meat and potatoes of how you snuck that plug out of there. When I did my plugs, I just pulled the intake as I think it is good to have a look in there from time to time as well.

It's all good, I really don't have the energy to make "how to" videos.. So, I expect people to skip through.. Especially since I don't make even spending money off of youtube, and videos like this in general..

Number 3 was actually the hardest. number 1 was actually a piece of cake! I am assuming the order goes from front passenger side being number 1 and front drivers side being 2, since the last one of the row of the passenger side was marked 5 and the middle one one the passenger side was marked 3...

I think if that is correct, that would make the one everyone thinks is the hardest number one...

The only problem with number 1 was getting the boot and coil up out of the way...

Thanks for watching!

Thanks! I'll just leave it alone for now. It is fine for me how it is. I don't need tons of power, it already has enough, and I find the midrange punch to be enough for my needs.

When the tires wear, I am just going to put some lame old highway tires, that are nice and quiet!

I am more interested in longevity over anything else, and I am thinking those plugs will last another 70K miles...

I was looking forward to seeing the video but its missing. Was the spark plug removal on a 2005 frontier 2.5 4cyl? Its a mess to take the manifold off. How can i see the video?
