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.

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.
