Question about 2004 Infiniti M45
Happened all of a sudden on the freeway. No loud bang or other odd noise, RPMs just went way up and it won't shift.
I did just have the oil changed two days before. Anyone got any ideas?
What do you mean by loud... Loud where??? If noise is from engine, make sure that the mechanical fan clutch is not "locked" (it's supposed to freewheel when cold... if it does not, it will "roar" when driving.

I need to know exactly what it is doing. Is the Motor Missing or Making Noises? Is the Transmission working good? Is the Rear end making any Noises? ETC.........

The headlamps are non adjustable. Because they are xenon, the government mandates that consumers not be able to adjust. It is a safety issue, and most dealers won't adjust them either. As far as changing the bulb, that shouldn't be to big a deal, just depends on how the bulbs are secured. Some have a round cap that unscrews, and some have a complicated pain in the rear metal clip. You just have to make sure if you get the bulb out not to touch it, because the oil in your skin will cause the bulb to pop. And I wouldn't suggest using any aftermarket blue lights or anything like that, I have seen several occasions where that type of bulb ran too hot and melted the wiring pigtail.

Just because the tranny fluid is full doesn't really mean that much. More importantly, what does it look and smell like? The recommended interval for trans service is 30,000 miles. It is important that this be done every time. The reason is that the tranny fluid pan has a filter inside. As the fluid loses its viscosity it loses its ability to lubricate. Once this begins to take place the heat and wear inside the transmission increase and can do so very quickly. If there is excessive wear then when you perform the service you will find metallic shavings in the bottom of the pan and in the fluid. If the fluid is not a brighter shade of red, or if it is more of a rust looking color then I would say have it serviced asap. If it smells burnt then that is another warning sign. But I would definitely have it serviced, not just draining and refilling the fluid. But filter, pan gasket and bolts as well. If the fluid looks good and doesn't smell burnt, then it could likely be a shift solenoid type issue. But you would have to have that diagnosed at a shop that has a Consult type computer to check for codes in the TCM.
