problem #2

  • 59,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Nissan 350Z. The contact stated that the clutch pedal stuck to the floor. He mentioned that when the pedal was engaged the vehicle did not have any power and when it was half way up as a result a burning smell came through the vents. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who stated that the clutch was defective and needed to be replaced. The transmission, the master cylinder and the slave cylinder were also replaced. The manufacturer was contacted and did not offer any assistance. The vehicle was repaired. The failure mileage was 59,000 and the current mileage was 64,000.

On 10/6/2010 I took my vehicle in for an oil change and evaluation of problem in shifting manual transmission. The transmission had problem with 1-2 and 4-3 shifts with grinding and difficulty shifting. The car was found to have a faulty transmission. The vehicle was also found to have, as stated by the tech, no visible oil in the engine. This indicates a consumption of 5+ quarts within 6500 miles. A tsb by Nissan: Ntb07-088 dates back to 2007 of high oil consumption. The newest tsb (ntb07-088D) only replaces the short-block of the engine as was done by the dealer. This has not addressed the damage of the engine due to oil starvation, as the tsb covers only partial oil consumption, not near total as in this case. As of the repair, the engine has a rougher idle and the new transmission is still difficult to shift from now 1-2 and 5-6.
