Infiniti FX35 firing order
The Infiniti FX35 3.5L firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6 and this engine is a longitudinal V6 which means there’s a driver’s side and a passenger’s side cylinder bank. As you raise the cover, you’ll see the cylinders 1, 3, and 5 in order from the front end of the engine toward its rear on the passenger’s side.
On the other hand, cylinders 2, 4, and 6 were laid out on the driver’s side and these were also ordered front to rear, so cylinders 1 and 2 are the front cylinders of their respective banks.
Ultimately, the 3.5-liter V6 used in the FX35 is a reliable engine with a slim chance of misfiring or engine issues if not treated on time. However, with the right maintenance approach and firing order, you can do much more and keep it running for miles above its life expectancy, so hopefully, our guide sets you on the road to that.
