Could be....I would first very simply check the gas cap. A loose or cracked gas cap could cause an O2 (oxygen) sensor to react and light up your "check engine" light. if the cap is indeed tight it may be an actual faulty sensor, in which case I would have your ODB plug under the steering wheel read by the infiniti dealer. Devoe infiniti is great here in Naples, FL!
Hope this helps,

Generally speaking there are 2 or more hidden screws. either along the edge, or beind a cover, on or near the handle. Remove those, and the rest is held in place by plastic anchors, which can be ppooed out by pulling away from door, and then up from the window once all are removed.

SOURCE: Front fender removal

Hiya... here's the details of fender removal/installation:
the left-side (same for right-side) fender has 6 bolts attached to the "sidebody" frame.
The bolt location:
3 are on the top fender-easy to find when hood is open,
1 is hidden at the rear of top inner fender-just open the left-front door wide to find it (early equinoxes had foam-like noise absorber material in it, just remove it from underneath fender after the wheelwell liner is removed),
1 bolt is hidden at bottom of front fender area at headlight/bumper area-you need to remove plastic wheelwell liner to gain access,
1 bolt is hidden at bottom of rear fender area where the black plastic rocker panel meets below the fender...
THIS area is probably the most difficult task to do since it requires you to remove a small bolt found on the front of rocker panel behind the front-left wheel then use a flat screwdriver or clip removal tool to pry open the black plastic **clip's 'dime-sized' head prior to pull out the clip's body (it has 8 clips underneath the chassis) then use your hands to grasp the rocker panel underneath, pull it down-toward you...this should do it....USE CARE during rocker panel and clip removal/installation so you don't break the clips!
It also has yellow plastic clips inside the rocker panel (used as a guide during installation into rocker sill holes-use caution not to break it)
**note: early equinoxes had rocker panel clips that you can actually pull it out from the hole, while later equinoxes has 'built-in' clips inside rocker panels that you don't see the clip heads below it due to engineering part design change**
Be sure to exercise care when handing this task!

SOURCE: How do I remove a wrecked front fender assy/quarter panel?

The front fenders are connected to the A pillar above the the top hinge, at the bottom of the rocker panel seam, three bolts pass through the hood hinge support in the middle of the fender, four bolts on the radiator support, three vertical bolts on the top radiator brace, and one bolt at the rear of the wheelhouse to the cab body. Yes, the wheelhouse is spot welded to the fender and must be removed with it. Remove all the bolts listed as well as the bolts retaining the splash shield. The splash shield is a plastic liner connected to both the wheelhouse and the fender. Remove the headlight/cornering lamp assembly. The best way I have found to do this is to loosen the bumper to framebrackets and let the bumper assembly sag to gain clearance. If the upper bumper cover is removed to gain the clearance needed you will more than likely need to get a new cover as the nylon clips have a tendency to break during removal. Once the fender/wheelhouse assembly has been removed use a spot weld cutter to separate the wheelhouse from the old fender. Check the new fender for clearance and fit on the vehicle. Make all the needed adjustments to get the fender to fit correctly. Remove the fender and attach the wheelhouse. This should be done by spot welding. It can also be done using bolts. If using bolts place some 3M double stick weather strip adhesive tape in the seam to prevent direct contact of the parts to prevent rattles and squeaks. Drill the new fender to match the holes made by the spot weld cutter in the wheelhouse. Use stainless bolts and lock nuts so that the assembly can be services if needed. I would also recommend using Wurth Rust Inhibitor on all the seams to prevent rust and once cured it is an excellent adhesive and will reduce noise coming from moving body panels. Good Luck. It is not as bad as it sounds. Take your time and it will be worth the effort.

How to change a timing chain on a 1994 Infiniti j30


Everything has to come off the front of the engine. That's the easy part. Setting the timing is the most important part. You really need a manual for this job. And follow the manual when resetting the timing. If the water pump is in there also, replace it. You only want to do this one time.

Back door will not open at all 1994 infiniti j30 how can i get it open tried to take off panel not enough room any solutions need help


Did you check to see if the child safety lock may have been activated? If so the door will only open from the outside.Try removing the power door lock switch/arm rest assembly to see if the door lock switch can be jumped out in the event the door lock switch is burnt out.
Does the Infiniti have an exterior key lock cylinder on the rear door? If so try to get a key to open the lock, it may be very difficult to remove the door panel when the door is sealed closed, but if you can that may be your only salvation short of attemting anslim jim door opening tool down the side of the door glass in ho[pes to trip the door linkage lock thus opening the door.

1994 Mercury Topaz Fender Removal


Harbor Freight and most local body shop supply stores should have a suction-cup type tool for pulling out dents. You maybe able to remove the inner fender well to get to the dent. To remove the fender, you'll need to remove the top fender bolts, the bolts that attach it to the header panel, and the bolts holding it on back by the door.

It wont turn over it not the battery nor the starter 1997 j30 . i turn it off and now it wont say nothing


There is a relay box in the left front fender area.A real pain to get to.I worked on Infinitis back in the day and remember replacing several of those on that model .They can be reached under the hood without removal of the fender but just barely.It is fairly sizeable black relay box in just about the upper center of the left (driver side ) front fender and it is a dig to retrieve out.

Location o2 sensors 94 Infiniti J30


There will be one on each side of the lower part of the engine on the catalysts, and then there will be two more on the exhaust tubes roughly halfway between the engine and the muffler. You should be able to look at the top of the engine and see four connectors with colored braided wires. They should be white, red, blue and black. You can trace those wires directly to the O2 sensors.
