A week ago Monday, my 350Z Roadster (stick) stalled out right in the mid of a shift while the car was rolling (no error lights came on). I was able to restart it after a few tries and the car ran fine for the rest of day. I drove about 40 miles after the stall. The next day, after driving for about 10 miles the car again died again, during an up shift and once again no warring lights but it restarted after a few tries.

At the dealer suggestion, the car was towed to the dealer. The computer had not recorded any fault conditions and after working on the car for three days, the dealer could not get the car to repeat the problem. So I picked up the car on Saturday and just before getting home the car stalled out during a shift!

Since I assumed that sooner or later the car might stall out and not restart, I only would drive it when the dealer was open, so the car could be towed right to them! This past Monday after driving for about 10 miles the car stalled out again, but this time the “Service Engine Soon”, “Slip” and “TCS Off” lights lit and stayed on but after the second restart only the “Service Engine Soon” stated on.

After three days of testing the dealer now thinks it is the “ECM” module, which of course is back ordered.
:doh:

I haven't heard anything reported about that malady yet. :OMG:

Although your Z is currently having some unusual computer related dilemmas, . . . . :banghead: however the good news is that your dealer has obviously diagnosed the problem and you should be back on the road before ya know it. :shiftdrive:

Just keep your fingers crossed that it does not reoccur. :cheers:

That was replaced two months ago. That is what the computer said was wrong and the Dealer could not believe that it would be bad a second time!

I had this happen to me several times - Dealer asked if I was using Mobil gas and I had. They told me to use a different brand as Mobil was high detergent and it softens the gaskets in the fuel pump allowing blowb or lack of vacumn.

I change to Texaco and B&P - 13,000 miles later still running like a charm without any issue!

Bet Mobile/Exxon would like to know that their gas, which has been designed to keep the intake system clean, is not compatible with Nissans fuel pump seals.

Sounds to me the fault would be Nissan's crappy seals.

Car from Japan ; Can't use USA (Exxon/Mobil) gas: Got to use BP (United Kingdom) or Texaco (Royal Dutch). You want American gas, go to BP station. You want Texas gas, go to Shell. Why should I be paranoid that the world is out to get the USA?

Well, I got my car back today and it SEEMS to be fixed, so I guess I will not be using the lemon law after all. It is strange that Nissan received the required lemon law notice yesterday and the car is fixed today! I wonder if there any connection between the two events (LOL)!

I can not believe how bad Nissan service is! My car has been at the dealer for 37 day and when I picked it up it had not been washed! Now there is some type of film on the car that I will have to clean off. This will be the last Nissan I buy!

Sorry you're having this problem. Be glad the dealership didn't wash you Z though...I've seen what the detail crews they hire use on the paint, and you're much better off to wash the car yourself.
