Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No engine light. 36,000 miles and has been on and off for at least 10-15,000 miles

what has been on and off?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Not sure. Usually takes the car to be running a round 1/2 hr and sometimes it is louder than others. Maybe sometimes I don't hear it. It is mainly when idling.
Infiniti Mechanic: john aka eautp, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

a spark knock is generally caused under load like when pulling a hill not at idle... Have you had infiniti look at the noise?

But I figured that this appears not to be uncommon according to forums online and I thought an experience Infiniti tech would be familiar with this
Infiniti Mechanic: john aka eautp, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

This is uncommon... Are you sure its a internal noise?

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
