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.

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.

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.

car stalls and conks out. mechanic said camshaft sprocket needs to be replaced along with the rest of the engine!
After 10 to 15 minutes after driving my car stalls. Starts right back up but stalls again. Then I start it and it will run for another 15 minutes or so before stalling again. The service engine light or check engine light, along with the SLIP light and the TCS off light comes on. I put a code reader on it and it said needs a new cam sensor. I researched where this sense is located but haven't had any luck. I called dealer and they claimed that the recall is not for my car. Please help 2002 Infiniti i35

Check engine light with abs light turns on plus battery light turns on then suddenly looses power i checked it says camshaft position sensor
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
