Engine Could Stall Without Warning While Idling
Engine, December 8, 2011
RepairPal Expert Overview
Our Quick Take:
The turbocharger boost sensor bracket may separate from the air inlet tube causing the engine to stall without warning.
What Should You Do?
Nissan will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning January 9, 2012. If you are experiencing engine stalling, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It's helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) when you call.
On certain vehicles, the turbocharger boost sensor bracket may separate from the air inlet tube due to a defective weld. If the bracket were to separate, the engine could stall while at idle, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the air inlet tube and replace it if necessary to correct this concern.
