Question about 2004 Nissan 350Z

2 Answers


I have an 04 350Z. I had the battery replaced today. Got on the highway soon after. Throttled up to about 75mph and then lost about 95% throttle power. My traction control, slip, and SES lights all came on. I could only get about 1000rpm out of the motor. Then coasted to a stop and turned the car off. Restarted the car and drove away with full power but the SES light remains on. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

    I was driving my 04 g35x and it just turned off, when I coasted to a stop I tried to restart it but it just clicked , had it mechanic says the engine is seized, there were no bells and whistles telling me the oil was low or anything, the service engine soon lite was on , but he told me that was due to a faulty gas gap.....he said only about half a litre of oil came out tho....does this seem normal

Ses might stand for service engine soon, did you replace the batterie? or a shop did it for you ? if it was a shop take it back to them and let them know what's happening but if you did it it has to be diagnose with the famous scan tool to se what information the computer has stored, you know like codes

Why is my car sputtering and losing power after it warms up?

How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? If temp related, check the coolant temp sensor. Check your throttle position sensor. Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.

I changed my spare plug wires but still the engine service soon light still is on

I have a 1999 Mercury tracer. I was driving down the highway two weeks ago and my check engine light came on. i went to autozone and he said something about misfire on bank and vacuum leak. He said it bascially was a tune up. i got in my car the next day and the light went off. it didnt come back on. Last sunday i got a tune up and a oil change. i was driving to work today when my service engine soon light came back on. could it be because its been warm here in st louis and all of a sudden its cold. or do i just need to get it reset. i hope its nothing major because im broke right now and cant afford to get it fixed
