The engine usually stops when either coming to a stop or when slowing down. Almost got into an accident twice as the steering locks up and the brake is hard to push in when this happens if I don't get it into neutral quickly. Service Engine light come on along with TCS OFF SLIP light. Took it to the dealership and they told me there is a knock in my engine and I need to replace the engine! : ( I just purchased the car through a private party and can not afford to get the engine fixed.

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.
