1998 Infiniti QX4 Problems

The 4WD Light May Flash On and Off Intermittently

The 4WD light may flash on and off intermittently with no transfer case related fault code stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). Our technicians recommend to ensure the correct Nissan/Infiniti  approved fluid is present in the transfer case if this condition occurs.

Erratic Idle Speed and Increased Accelerator Pedal Effort

Carbon deposits on the throttle body may cause any of the following issues: Idle speed fluctuation, incorrect idle speed, difficulty accelerating way from a stop, and or increased accelerator pedal resistance. Our technicians tell us a revised throttle body and associated parts are available to resolve this issue.

Evap System Fault Due to Debris From a Failed Charcoal Canister

Failure of the EVAP System charcoal canister may allow charcoal debris to infiltrate the EVAP system causing other failures. Cleaning the vapor lines to ensure the system is clear of debris is important when repairing EVAP system failures.

Rust May Form on the Strut Tower Housing

In areas where winter road salt is used, a mixture of snow/water and salt may enter an assembly location hole in the upper strut housing. This corrosive mixture can collect on the mating surface of the strut housing panel and the inner hood ledge assembly; over time, this can cause rusting of the strut tower housing. The rust can weaken the housing, causing it to crack and pull away from the inner hood ledge assembly. This can lead to grinding noises and increased steering effort, which, if severe enough, can cause the steering column to break. This would result in a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the strut housing and repair the vehicles as necessary. An interim notification letter should be mailed to owners prior to May 16, 2011.

Rated
based on 2 customer reviews
I have had this car for 12 years. It has 267,000 miles and I just started to have problems with it. Nothing major that would have gone out on most cars with half those miles. Great car and the mechanics that have worked on them say it is one of the best cars made.
Probably the best car I have ever owned. Approx 180,000 miles just took to Infiniti dealer for strut housing recall. Has been a wonderful car. Would definitely buy another.
