Ask Your Own Infiniti Question

did you check the oil pressure with the engine hot ??

Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No i haven’t i heard about that but no oil light on or chain noise if that matters
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Also the gaskets that are know to leak oil in the rear timing cover that cause the pressure drop i did remove and use sealer on them

t​he light will not come on and the chain will not make noise . when you remove the lower oil pan did you inspect the contents in the pan ?

Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Nothing out of ordinary in the pan

sometimes you can see I small part of the oil galley gasket broken off in there

Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Ya nothing in there but i did reseal the oil galleys

I​f you have replace all the part that you did not the electrical for the solenoids are good then you most likely have internal oil leak cause by a broken/leaking main oil galley gasket on the rear timing chain cover.

Ask Your Own Infiniti Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
If u run it on are scanned it shows the bank 1 timing at 0-4 and bank 2 at 41
