1990 Infiniti Q4546,100
I just purchased this car from an old (he 92 and her 78) friend. They are the original owners. The car has been garaged its entire life and has not been involved in any accidents. After a couple weeks, I drove it to a store. When I returned the car did not want to start. After several attempts the car started but idled very rough, fluctuating between 300 and 1000 rpm. The check engine light stayed on. The idling finally started to calm. I started to drive home and there was a lack of power. I checked the codes and received a code 11. I reset the computer and the car performance returned to normal for a few days. Then without warning it all started again. Will Infinite warranty this under a recall or should I tackle the repair myself?
