My 2010 EX35 (105k miles) has been stalling occasionally after starting the car and shifting from P to R. (The rpms always drop after shifting out of Park, the stalling just depends on how low they drop.) I had a similar issue 2 years ago, Infiniti dealer replaced the throttle bodies and all was good until recently. Took it back to Infiniti, they replaced throttle bodies again, but i'm still having the problem. Car went back to Infiniti for a week, they couldn't find a solution. Anyone have the same problem? Any known fixes or ideas? (The spark plugs were also replaced, all fluids/services are up to date.)
Also, unrelated, a local shop recommends I have the drive belt replaced due to age/mileage; Infiniti hasn't recommended that. Should I get that done?
If the dealership is stumped, I would think that you'd have to give the car to a good independent shop for at least a few days to maybe a week in order for them to do lots of troubleshooting.
Recently with my wife's vehicle (non-Infiniti) had the same issue as you where it would stall after starting the car and shifting the transmission to reverse. In that car, the problem was caused by premature lockup of the transmission's torque converter clutch. I'm not expecting that this is the source of your problem, as I think the TC clutch in the EX is only supposed to lock up in gears 3-5.
Were you or the dealership able to consistently get the issue to repeat? It doesn't also happen when you shift directly from P to D, does it?
