trouble starting -
This happened to me on my 2003 Nissan 350z engine. Engine stalled while I was accelerating on the highway from 40 MPH to 65 MPH. The Traction Control System and the Service Engine Soon light came on. This issue is very common on 2003 Nissan 350z models. You can call 800-647-7261 Extension 457328 to complain. But Nissan will not stand by their own faulty work and refuse to reimburse you. Nissan Consumer Affairs will hide/give you the run-around and not take any accountability for this oil camshaft position sensor issue. -
stall after worm up 10 min tcs came on run fine stoped was hard to start next day cold start started fine 10 min stalled was hard to restart. tcs light came on. -
I just had my clutch replaced yestreday and now my service light came on today and I am getting a camshaft imbalance code. It was reset once today and lasted appx 15 - 20 and came back on again while driving in city traffic. -
Car randomly shut off after making a very slow U-turn.. also later shut off while car was idling in drive way.. -
Car has been through 6 passenger side sensors .. Just replaced both cam sensors and crank sensor and still received codes. Nissan is being cheap and doesn't wanna give me the recall -
Lost of power. Went into limp mode going up on a hill. Oil gauge goes crazy. Bought a new sensor and hopefully that helps. -
Poor Idle, puffing in intake manifold and exhaust. Diagnostic test shows Intake/camshaft over-advanced. -
While slowing, taking off or coming to a stop my car will automatically just shut off. -
Fault code PO340. For about a month or so: Engine suddenly began stalling (usually at a stop), hard starting, miss under load and rough running, followed by normal operation, but for an increasingly short time with each cycle. (Previously, a similar situation due to clogged fuel injectors; all were replaced; thought at first it might be a repeat). All dash lights erratically cycled between suddenly coming on during those symptoms and turning off (usually) when things were normal. Never stranded, though; after dying, car started reluctantly each time, up to when the repair was made by a local independent shop. Cost: ~ $380. Wasn't aware of a general problem until visiting this site. -
Parked my car and it turned itself off -
just got the car today - stalled twice turning corners -
My car stalled in the middle of the road yesterday three lights on, after restarted the engine, I drove it home but the engine service light is still on. -
Lose ignition at times. Cranks long before starting. Service engine light, TCS light and Slip light come on. Code for bad Cam Position Sensor. Replaced twice. Still same problem. -
As I crank up my car and warm it up it makes loud sqeeky noise.. Also when I driving and try to cut on my heater the loud noise come back. Is my call a recall -
Car is difficult to start. Will die just driving along at any time or any speed/load. TCS light and Check Engine light will come on. Have had independent mechanic try and diagnose with no solution. Had them just replace crank angle and both cam angle sensors, seems to have helped for a few thousand miles, then problem returns. Do not know what to do now except take it in to Nissan dealership and get hosed. -
Cam position sensors replaced. $300 -
My cam sensor On left side marked faulty changed it and still marking faulty -
Vehicle cuts off when making turn when engine is cold or cuts off on start up when engine is warm. -
