Customer Question
I have a 2002 Infiniti...
I have a 2002 Infiniti q45. The idle is very high and the service light come on. The dealer doesn't know what the problem is. I replaced the MAF, upper O2 sensors based on the scan. Those errors went away and now it shows I am running rich. We can't find a leak any where. My mileage dropped from 22 to 15. Highway long distance I can get up to about 23 at 70. Does this help you determine the problem?

Hi Roy. We have tried to do an electronic reset a few times and it didn't do anything. The idle remains at 1300 rpm in neutral. I have replaced everything in the intake except the IAC. I have spend about $1400 so far. The dealer can't figure it out. I went on the internet to find many others with the same problem and the same dealer responses. We have reset the computer 6 times over the course and fixed everything indicated. I suspect some items were not at fault but got reported because of this main problem. This problem occurred after replacing the MAF with a new one.

It didn't work either. We did it three different times after replacing all the parts.
Infiniti Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 years ago

in the beginning you mentioned you replaced parts due to a scan. what were the codes???? codes rarely identify bad parts just failed systems

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I don't have the codes with me. They indicate a lean condition. However, I have found codes are dependent on other codes to be accurate. This confusion led me to replace all these parts. My mechanic is also baffled. It changes every time we check it. He will clear all the codes to start over, I will drive about 200 miles and we will recheck. They change. That has led me to replace everything. The warning light will appear at off intervals; not always within the first few miles.

Infiniti Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 years ago

at this point yes, you need to drive it the 200 miles, give me the codes and we can continue. by no means clear anything. I will need all the codes. something started this and we need to find out what.

I had a bad cam sensor 0345 and I changed both of them, after that I got the 0021 code which is timing over advanced in bank 2, I read on line dirty oil causes this code so I changed the oil, same code. I read somewhere else that if I didn't use genuine nissan sensors I could get this code so I replace both sensors and the car won't start. It cranks but no start. I have checked both solenoids (intake valve timing) and they are clean and work I wanted to make sure I had good oil pressure so I left the solenoid off and cranked it and it took 5 or 6 cranks to get oil out of the hole. I don't know what is wrong I think either the timing is so far advanced the computer won't let it start or cam phaser is stuck. I am at a loss what to do next… read more
