I did one of course and eventually found the filter (cartridge type, and not a screw on) on one side of the engine, hidden under a plastic shroud !



You sure about that? The K&N website seems to list the oil filter type the same as the previous models, which is a screw-in type. Only the T31 diesel has the cartridge type oil filter.

Do you have the Nissan part number?

Hi Tom,

The previous posts in this thread seem to suggest 14mm socket for the factory NGK plugs in the T31. I have not tried it because am still at 60K, so plenty of life in my spark plugs.

Re:


Old topic bump but a standard 14mm spark plug socket fits these fine, not sure what the big deal is?

Re: spark plug socket size


Thanks guys.

Great info.

I did indeed use a 14mm socket to remove the old spark plugs .

the new set I ordered from Super cheap for $160.

the only thing I noticed is, while using the long socket, I could only insert the extension to my socket driver half way, approx 8mm. If I inserted all the way it would not catch onto the 5mm screw head on the spark plug itself.

It sounds technical but is very easy to do.

It took me approx 15 minutes to cpmplete.

I have noticed a small improvement, but nothing to rave about.

thanks to everyone for their input emoticon
