Check Engine Light and Engine Stalling on Infiniti I35

The crankshaft angle sensor or the camshaft position sensor can fail and cause loss of engine power, an engine that cuts out, and other drivability problems. This will cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Certain models have been involved in a recall to replace the camshaft and crankshaft sensors.

My 2003 I35 is suddenly losing power and has reduced power. The car can die or surge. Several lights on the dash come on including TCS, SLIP & Service Engine Soon. I called the Infiniti dealer about the recall for Engine and Engine Cooling because the car has the same symptoms but I was told my car is NOT covered under the recall based on the VIN. From what I'm reading, this issue is more widespread than the dealer admits.
The engine stopped and it was hard to re-start the engine again. The following bulbs turn on: Service Engine Soon TCS OFF SLIP UPDATE: Took the car to the mec shop and they replaced the crankshaft angle sensor for $40 USD. Problem solved. NOTE to other users on this post: don't need to replace the engine at all, it's a sensor problem (the original sensor was designed poorly, the new design avoids this issue), and it's well documented at Nissan's own problem list.

Was driving home from work one day and all of a sudden the needle on the rpm dial starts going haywire and the car suddenly wont go past 40 mph. when I try to accelerate it makes this sound similar to starting a lawn mower. After I pulled over, turned the car off, and started it up again the a.t check light started flashing and stopped after about 10 seconds. After that day the car has not sounded the same and the same thing happens periodically.

Serviced engine soon light on. Car stalls while driving. Replaced alternator and battery. Didn't help car still stalls
Car stalls after 10 to 15 minutes run time the problem is both camshaft sensors and crankshaft sensor once you have replaced all 3 at the same time car will run better than new.

My power in the car shutdown completely, in traffic. There's no warning alerts to show what's wrong. Then I try to turn the engine on nothing, no power. This is dangerous! I am afraid to drive due to this problem
