I have a 2013...

I have a 2013 QX56. When stopped or at very low rpms it seems to run rough. Rpm will bottom out almost like it's going to die. Engine is running rough only at low rpms. Once you hit the gas and get going it's fine and runs great. No engine lights are on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you metered out the ignition system?

I don't think so. My wife took it to a shop and they said there were no codes when they hooked up computer. They are trying to tell me it needs a new transmission for $7800.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your QX56 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I couldn't work on a Tonka toy. Lol

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No that's it

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Transmission normally won't cause a running ruff issue, unless you have a bad torque converter. How many miles do you have on the car? Did you have the timing chain recall done?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
114,000 miles. We bought the car a year ago. If the timing change recall was taken care of it was before we owned it.

Do you have the vin number, I can check to see if that was done.

Also, what codes are you getting exactly?

No codes are coming up when they hooked up computer.

I don't see that the recall was done. The recall is for timing chain stretch. So that can certainly cause the running ruff issue. So I would inquire with your local dealer on this and see if your issue is related to the recall.

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!
