If the interupption of the signal is so brief that the ECM Electronic Control Module dose not have time to diagnose the condition, the vehicle may shut off creating the risk of an accident. The dealer will reprogram the ECM free of charge. The Nissan recall # is R0606

Vehicles equipped with a 2.5L engine may suffer from increased oil consumption as a result of improper performance of the piston rings.

Vehicles will also be inspected for excess oil consumption. A small number of vehicles will require engine replacement. Nissan began notifying vehicle owners of the recall on June 9, 2006.
