Question about 2004 Infiniti I35

1 Answer

Car lost power and I had to push the gas pedal to the floor to go forward, made a loud knocking sound and then car went dead. I thought it might be the engine but there we no signs of engine problems before this happened. I have no idea what it can be except for a starter problem or alternator. Please help!!!!!

    It could be a "blown" engine.

    How many miles on engine?

    Was oil regularly checked?

    Was engine pinging?

    What sound do you get when you try to crank it?

What happens when you drive without a gas cap


ok on todays automobiles the gas cap does more than just seal the gas tank. Now they run a return line to the tank. this does 2 things. it returns un used fuel and vapors back to the tank , and it pressurizes the tank to help improve the fuel pump.

Now as it is possible running without the gas cap may cause problems I am not 100 % positive that is your only problem.

It sound like the knock sensor is detecting the knock you mentioned and is trying to retard the timing to fix it . In doing so it has retarded it to far causing the engine to loose power and eventually stall. I would first replace the gas cap. then run a good gas additive to a full tank of gas to clean out any water and dirt that may have gotten into the tank while the cap was off. now the issue of the knock as you described. is it a knock or a ping? A knocking sound is loud metallic hammering noise. a ping is a ting not very loud. if it is a loud metallic sound I would have a reputable mechanic check it soon, as it could be a serious issue. Ping can be caused by bad or weak gas or cheap low octane gas. I would run a mid grade gas in it and see if it fixed the issue.

When I put my pedal to the floor, it just revs it seems like that harder I push the peddle the slower it goes. It feels like it's not getting gas when I press the pedal all the way down.. also. Fuel pump...


Catalytic converter could possibly be clogged. Are you getting any sulfer smell? especially when going up hills. Also if this is a vortec motor ( says VORTEC across the top of engine) they were famous for have the injector module leak in the intake.

Knocking sound under floor board while driving


Hi,
Check your tires for uneven wear. Sounds like they are out of balance and causing the shock or other suspension part to bounce/bump the under side of the car.

1993 Lexus Ls400 loss of power a 2500-3000rpm when you accelerate hard on the gas pedel, hower if you press down on the gas pedal slowly the power will increase all the way up to 6000rps with no power...


Wish I had an answer - sounds very much like a problem I am having with my '92 LS400. I have a parts car, and have changed out the ECM, fuel pump, injectors, fuel pilter, fuel pressure regulator, ran the can with exhaust unbolted (check for clogged CATs, checked out my timing belt for slippage amoung other things, and nothing works. I have no check engine light on. Do you?

1997 s10 2 wheel drive truck. 4.3L v6 makes a loud noise as the car accelerates fast or under load. When running 55 I can release the gas pedal and the noise is not audible. I can put the truck in neutral...


Your noise sounds like it is power train related,If you have eliminated the engine,Since it doesn't make the noise while moving and in neutral.
It sounds like a universal joint in the drive shaft.Do you notice a vibration
along with the noise?

It sounds like a fuel delivery issue so it could be many things such as low fuel pressure from the pump,clogged or partially pluged fuel filter, a malfunctioning throttle posisitioning sensor (if you have a check engine light on) or if its turbo it could be turbo lag etc.

Loud Knocking when pressing on gas pedal


What you are describing sounds like you have an engine bearing failing. Do not drive it 'till you have it diagnosed and repaired (most times though it's too late when you hear it.)..... Outside chance it could be the trans flex plate but I doubt it.
