Question: When to change spark plugs.

I have 37, 250 miles on my Nissan. Of late it seems to be a little sluggish. I use a K&N air filter. My Nissan is a 4X4.

Check your owner's manual or local dealer for your maintenance schedule. It will list when your plugs should be changed. Alldata doesn't list it for a vehicle this new.

As a side note, make sure you don't over oil the K & N filter. Excess oil can contaminate your air flow meter and cause expensive repairs.
