G35 dies while driving, but will restart after sitting.

Postby redsx13 » Mon May 08, 2017 11:32 am

Hey guys, I really need your help. My 06 g35 6mt died on the way to work today. Cranks but won't start. I was able to coast it off the freeway into a safe place to check the fuses-they all looked good. After sitting for about 5min it started right up. I got back on the freeway and it died again almost instantly.

I have a CEL on and I'm getting a code for a misfire. Could be unrelated as the code started before the problem.

Thanks in advance!

How many miles are on your G35? The misfire could be due to a spark plug or ignition coil, or a fuel problem. Remember, engines need 4 things in order to run; air, fuel, ignition and compression.

I have heard of this problem before. Many G owners have attributed it to faulty cam/crank position sensors. I had the same problem with my G. I replaced both cam position sensors and the crank sensor. I noticed that it would die while driving throw a code, then automatically reset after the ECU did not sense the error any longer. Here is the Ebay link for the sensors I bought http://www.ebay.com/itm/Crankshaft-Cams ... 2749.l2649.
