spark plugs , yes could be
Ya man i highly recommend you change the spark plugs , since you really don't know if the previous owner changed them & if he did when..
My ride has 137k & i did a tune up when it had 85k but i bought none nissan spark plugs thinking i would get better performance since thats what the company boosted about. It did not help the performance !!
& i would think that a proper spark plug would last more than 60 k miles.
Today i went to nissan & bought the original nissan spark plugs & PCb valve, spent $85 bucks . The coils are $105 bucks each so i'm skipping that since the guy @ nissan said it's not something you need to change unless you really need too.
So i'll let the mechanic change the spark plugs & check it's performance , if it still acts up then i know i have to change the coil ..
My check engine light has been going on & off for sometime now but to simplify your situation i recommend you get your car read by a computer that reads all errors ..& yes if there is a problem with a spark plug the check light engine will turn on ..
oh & i have a 2000 se maxima .. great car man as long as you take care of them ! I'v made sure never to skip it's basic oil changes . Keep up with all fluids!!
Now with it's higher milage i'm using synthetic oil & never let it pass 4,500 miles . Some people say it's not necessary to change it that often but they're not paying for my mechanic bills ..
I hope this helps !
Wish you well ,
