Engine light

5 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I have a 2013 with AEM Cold Air Intake. For the past few months the engine light keeps coming on and sometime the (lost traction) light.

I have taken it to ultra tune and all they could tell me was it was a temp sensor.

I have had the two most forward (front of the car) S/F air temp sensors replaced and I though the problem was fixed and then the light was back on again.

Has anyone had this problem, If so how did you fix it.

I have been told it needs to be tuned/detuned? Has anyone had their 370Z tuned here in Perth?

Regards John

You need the CEL code. Requires a OBDII reader to extract the code from the car.  Jaycar sell them.

Lost traction light is just that  ....  be a bit more delicate with your right foot.

Hi BGTV8,

Thanks for the advice. I have ordered a OBD II and hopefully it will tell me where the problems are.

The thing with the traction light is it can come on when I am doing 40Km in forth and other times when I start the car.

Regards John.

I remember having this issue in the 350z, funno if its the same thing i think mine may have been a cam sensor but i dont remember. However i do remember the car eventually turning off during drives, scary stuff

Thanks Brett,

I will see what the OBD II reader comes up with once I get it.

      Looks awesome, these always remind me of someone wearing a cap.  This is heaps cheaper than a US company was asking.  At 300ish its worth a shot.  Put up some photos of it once you've finished finessesing.

      My attempt at fitting it would involve a hammer ,blue tack and no more nails

      Spoiler is from Ebay, currently on special. It does look fantastic, and it's a real carbon fibre, not a vinyl wrap.. Regarding fine adjustments, there is a concern that small fibres may cause complications similar to those of asbestos so I'm getting a full face mask and disposable overalls. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CARBON-FIBER-CS-TYPE-N-STYLE-TRUNK-WING-REAR-SPOILER-FOR-NISSAN-370Z/262399870438

      Looks a pretty damn close fit and so much better than the stock spoiler. Work wheels look great too, very tastefull mods. Got a link to where you ordered your  spoiler from?

      It's a no-name brand, but the quality of workmanship is pretty good. I don't see many classic hand-laid-carbon-fibre faults. It didn't come with any instructions, screws, tape or paper templates. I don't recommend fitting it yourself as it is really time consuming for a beginner (me). But I already started so... OK, trial fitting (screws only). Middle part fits well, the RHS needs minor adjustment (2-4mm) and the LHS needs probably at least several mm. The problem is that it needs to be ground exactly where one of the 4 main screws is. I'll try on the weekend.
