Basic answer from infinitiusa.com on Lane Departure Prevention, but here it is: LDP uses a camera to monitor the distance between the vehicle and lane markings and, if the vehicle drifts towards the lane markers, the system first sounds a audible warning, followed by a selective application of the brakes to help move your vehicle back into its lane. ...

Have you changed the cabin filters lately? Black mold can smell like Urine-Ammonia, this mold can also grow on the ac evaporator coil. Pull the cabin filters and check for mold. Other than this it could be a rich running engine that causes the catalytic converter to put out strong odors.

Thanks for the great detail. Considering this is a bit of an odd issue, I'll try thinking outside the box a little. But first I would use a multimeter to test the coolant temp sensor, then o2 sensors. Perhaps even a quick check of the upper radiator hose to make sure the thermostat isn't stuck open. I say to check these first because it sounds like you'...

In a word, Yes. Maybe it didn't hurt it where you can tell this time, but remember, cars were meant to stay on the ground, not do Dukes of Hazzard stunt flying. Every time something like this happens, you are putting undue stress on your springs, tires, rims, and suspension. Every time this happens, there has been a little more life which has left the ...

It sounds to me as though they didn't put (enough) oil back in after the engine flush. First of all, it didn't need an engine flush. Mobil1 and other synthetics are renowned for not leaving deposits in the engine. I would bet your engine would have been sparkling clean on the inside. They sold you something you didn't need. (I'm betting something along the ...

You need to identify the source of the leak Clean everything in your driveway. Use Gunk, water soluble, or the like and get the Power Steering Fluid gone. Then: Allow everything to dry out. Validate any leaks...mind you, you have not started the engine since you cleaned EVERYTHING that could be consider oil out of the engine bay. Now, start it and run. ...

The check valves are there to prevent fluid from draining back to the tank so that the spray happens as soon as you ask for it. Weak output from both jets suggests a common point of failure. Some things to check: A kinked or pinched hose. Clogging of a filter in the fluid reservoir. A failing pump motor. Low voltage to the pump motor. Another possibility ...

The Engine Control Module has multiple outputs to control at least 3 different relays that control the two fans on the radiator/condenser area. Each fan has 4 wires, and a HI and LO speed. The exact control strategy I could not discover, but the ECU uses a variety of input signals and internal variables to determine how much "fan" should be turned on for ...

To the second question: How can I figure out if the TSB applies? If it does apply, how can I find out for myself if the reprogramming has been done or not? Apart from experiencing the fault described by the TSB and assuming that is the cause, you cannot unfortunately. More guess work- if you know the dealership which the previous owner used, they may ...

I own a Genesis, a Miata and a Tiburon. They all seem to hold up well. We live in a VERY rural area with dirt roads and it rains a lot. What I've found is that you should wash the cars every 2 - 3 days. This keeps the pollen, dirt and mold off of it so you don't prematurely destroy the paintjob. I also have gotten into the habit of hosing down my brakes ...

first why is it revving at 4k to do 120kmph? This is concerning and could mean the car is in some sort of limp mode or you are in the wrong gear. most likely its wrong gear since there is no check engine light on. or I am not properly understanding what is meant by "4000 rpm and 120 km will run slow" or do you have a manual transmission or an automatic ...

The only benefit to having regular maintenance done at an authorized dealership is that some manufacturers sometimes have "secret recalls", where an issue has been discovered and rather than going through a public recall that will tarnish the manufacturer's image, manufacturers sometimes issue the recall internally and only to the dealership network, nobody ...


3

The best you can do is ask for maintenance records. If they don't have that, then there's really no need to even ask. You'll have to ask them if the regular maintenance is done and take them at their word. Really, the only thing taking it to the dealer will get you is higher bills upon exit. As long as the vehicle is taken to a good shop for the maintenance, ...

It sounds like you have a few things going on. If your OBD scanner reports "error", it's that your ECU isn't responding. Maybe your ECU isn't getting power, maybe it's defective. Your power windows being stuck suggest an overall electrical glitch in the car. Since the car is almost 20 years old, check to see that there isn't a switch (power window, power ...

EDIT: Pictures of my setup. I think I used 24" of high pressure hose total, and my canister happens to sit nicely behind the bracket that holds the PS reservoir. I have an '06 G35 6sp Sedan (145k miles). I installed a catch can using the first method you listed, by adding it in line with the existing PCV valve<->intake plenum. For your application, I'd ...

You could chance it, but here's the rub. What happens if it does leak? Then you have to pull the pan down and fix the issue anyway. You are going to be better off just fixing it in the first place and then you won't have to worry about it. If you fill it back up and then it leaks, you'll have to drain the fluid which can be an added expense and time. ...

Will this damage my car? Hopefully it hasn't. In principle, sure, dropping a car from a sufficient height will break it. And injure people who may be in it. Next time, pay attention to the posted speed limits and road signage, especially when driving on roads you don't know well. If you weren't too far above the speed limit when this happened, you should ...

The CANBus error is key here. Something is shorted, broken or not connected. The suspect electrical components are: Manual Mode Switch Circuit AT Shift Selector Assembly Wire Harness and Connectors between components For more diagnostic info, check out this thread: http://www.infinitifx.org/42-2nd-gen-2009/20401-transmission-problem-different-one.html ...

I doubt you'll ever see this considering how old this post is, but for anyone that happened to run across this post I'll add my two cents. First off never let any of these quick lube places do anything more than an oil change. They work off of commission and often aim to get the customer to get added services that aren't even needed in the first place. ...

Some throttle lag is normal on electronic throttle equipped engines. Most drivers do not notice it. But those who do often ask why. The lag strategy is done so that the fuel control system can stay in closed loop control in an effort to keep the fuel mixture at stoichiometric during acceleration. Older systems designed for the less stringent emission limits ...

Catch cans are common on modified turbo engines (they sell kits), what you suggest is the way to do it. Most catch cans have a drain in the bottom so you can drain the can and see how much oil is being pushed through the pvc system over a given amount of engine run time. The only reason to vent it through a pvc valve into the intake is for emissions ...

I had the same problem on my Subaru Forester, Opened the hood and found that the reservoir cap was off. Replaced it and it worked perfectly.

I'm pretty sure what you have is the "Rev-Up" motor as you suggested. This stems from the year ('06) and it being a manual transmission. This information was derived several G35 forums as well as what's available as parts through my favorite online parts retailer. One of the major things which is different about the "Rev-Up" motor is it has variable valve ...

According to this, it's just a camera looking for pavement markings. Getting closer to one sounds the alarm, getting too close selectively applies the brakes to steer the car back. I'm guessing the front brake of the side you want to steer towards will get applied.


2

For the most part, the front tires will wear faster than the rear tires. This is due to having to steer the vehicle. When the car is moving, you put steering input through the steering wheel, this sets the tires in motion to change the direction of the vehicle. When direction change occurs, the tires must fight the inertial forces as the car wants to keep ...

Pressure test the system from the high pressure line to the low pressure line. Check the Condenser. Either there is a leak in the system or its clogged. Does the radiator and condenser fan turn 'On' while the AC is engaged?


2

Did you or someone recently "top off" the refrigerant? Overheating in the condenser with too much fluid can cause the high pressure limit switch to engage, stopping the compressor. If you get it warm and run it in your driveway, when the AC stops does the compressor also stop? Running on the highway may be enough to cool the condenser completely, reducing ...


2

So if I understand correctly, one of your radiator hoses (I'm assuming the UPPER one here since if it was the lower one, they never would have been able to fill it with coolant to begin with) was disconnected or (more likely) became disconnected at some point while you were driving. If that's the case and your engine overheated to the point of stopping, as ...

AC drain tube is clogged, find it in the engine compartment on the lower firewall area, passenger side. Run a wire or other suitable device to clear the drain tube. If it starts leaking again a few days later, rotoroot the drain tube again.

The correct TSB is ITB14-051. Does your car have intelligent cruise control/forward collision warning? Is the DTC C1A27 stored in the computer? Is the brake fluid level normal? Is the car AWD? was it built before 5/2014? Is the car FWD? was it built before 8/2014? If these apply than your car is covered under the TSB. As to how to check if the fix has ...
