About Infiniti I30
Infiniti I30 is a mid-size vehicle manufactured by the Japanese automaker Nissan Motors and sold under Nissan's marque Infiniti in North America, the Middle East, and Africa from 1996 to 2001. The first Infiniti I30 was introduced in 1995 for the 1996 model year. It actually is the Nissan Cefiro's another name in some markets internationally. Before the last Infiniti I30 rolled off the assembly line in 2001 and got replaced by the Infiniti I35 for the 2003 model year, Infiniti I30 has been produced for two generations.
The first generation Infiniti I30 (1995-1998) got exported to North America in 1995 for the 1996 model year. It was offered in base I30 and I30t Touring as well as I30 with full Sport Package. As a 4-door sedan, Infiniti I30 was powered by a 3.0 L VQ30DE V6 engine that could produce 190 horsepower and this engine was mated to either a 4-speed automatic transmission or a 5-speed manual transmission. Then the second generation Infiniti I30 (1999-2001) was unveiled in 1999 for the 2000 model year. The full Sport Package was unavailable but other trim levels got sustained. The 3.0 L V6 engine could produce 227 horsepower and the only transmission became the 4-speed automatic transmission in North America.
Infiniti I30 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
Actually, it is very natural that auto parts in Infiniti I30 would wear and tear as time passes by, which would also cause some problems. What you should do for your Infiniti I30's longer lifespan is to diagnose and solve these problems as early as possible:
First, slides when in a turn. At the car repair statistics site CarComplaints.com, this is the most reported problem by Infiniti I30 owners. This problem would get worse if driving on wet, icy or snowy roads. They described that the vehicle handling would also become sluggish and rattling or squeaking noises keep coming from underneath the vehicle. If your Infiniti I30 is also suffering from these troubles, you had better get the I30 sway bar bushing, I30 sway bar link bushing, I30 sway bar kit and the I30 sway bar bracket inspected.
Second, Check Engine Light flashes and the vehicle won't start as well as engine will not turn over. We can assume from the descriptions made by Infiniti I30 drivers that the I30 engine is failing. They also told that the engine became noisy and the engine performance reduced a lot as well. Decrease in power while accelerating, rough idle and poor engine efficiency as well as engine backfiring and misfiring is not rare on Infiniti I30. These symptoms require you to check if the I30 exhaust manifold, I30 EGR valve gasket or I30 ignition coil is failing.
However, there are always so many unforeseen problems may happen to Infiniti I30, what you should do is to be always prepared in advance. Taking preventative measures is better than reaction measures after all. In Infiniti I30, some electrical parts are more vulnerable than those that could last as long as I30's lifespan. So the I30 power steering pressure switch, I30 vapor pressure sensor and I30 coolant temperature sensor needs extra attention. And other vulnerable but essential parts such as wiper arm, hood latch, hood cable and wheel seal, they are the necessary parts to make you a safe and smooth driving trip.
It is also very important that getting broken parts replaced before they do more harms.
