FUEL INJECTORS

1996 Nissan Maxima

Engine Performance problem
1996 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 164000 miles

My Maxima recently threw a code for Cylinder 3 misfire. I took it to the Nissan dealership and got a diagnostic done. They came back with a bad injector and knock sensor. I paid $1,800 for the car. The repair estimate is $1,400. Is there a. PDF service manual or step by step instruction do it yourself?

When upper intake manifold collector is removed, you can get at the knock sensor easily.
