Power to Go, Power to Tow: Infiniti QX56 Boat Project

The Infiniti QX56 full-size luxury SUV might be best known for its leather-trimmed, 7-passenger interior and technological advances like the world’s first Around View™ Monitor, but its real claim to fame could be its powerful, 400-horsepower 5.6-liter V8 engine and 8,500-pound towing capacity. Offering strong low-end torque, smooth operation throughout the entire RPM range and peak torque of 413 lb-ft, the Infiniti QX certainly has “power to go, power to tow” credentials in spades. Now,...

2011 Infiniti EX35 clobbers the 2011 Mercedes GLK350

The Infiniti EX35 is a five-door, five-passenger crossover with athletic tendencies. The sportiness comes from the underlying platform, which also forms the basis of the G37 sedan and coupe, cars that have credibly challenged the sports sedan primacy of the German brands. Mercedes is now in the game, too, with its GLK350 premium compact crossover attempting to pose a challenge to the EX35. While the EX leans toward the luxurious side of the premium crossover theme, there’s no shortage of...

Sparco Steering Wheel Install

Since after searching I did not really find a specific article for this (actually I did but it had no pictures) I decided I would just do a quick write up on it while I was doing it.

Altima Coupe How to Install Sequential Turn Signals

How to Install Sequential Turn Signals This article shows you how to install Oznium Orange flexible LED strips to be used as sequential turn signals on your Nissan Altima. Ok Guys and Girls, I had to do it! Especially since I told LBC about it. The whole process takes about 4 hours to do. Probably less but since I was technically “working” from home, I had to do this project in the middle of conference calls, answering emails and other work related stuff. I’m quite happy with the...

How to reset welcome lighting on an Infiniti EX35

The welcome lighting is a feature that illuminated lights under the rear view mirror. This is a great feature as the car comes alive when you walk up to it. The standard detection rate is ~1 meter depending on signal strength from the transponder. If you park your EX35 for longer than 14days this feature will turn off to conserve battery reserve. The reasoning for this is simple, when this system is active the BCM is monitoring for the presence of the key ID. When the system is deactivated the...

Manual transmission leaking from the speedometer drive? Let’s fix it!

Nothing’s more annoying than a leak, and it seems our Datsuns have all experienced leaking from the area where the speedometer cable attaches to the transmission housing. Of course, gear oil gets all over your driveway or garage floor, the undercarriage, and makes a nasty mess. Let’s fix it once and for all. So, typically, that leakage is coming from the actual speedometer drive pinion. It has two seals, and they wear over time. Mine, for instance, was a close-ratio 280Z 5-speed that I...

2016 Nissan 370Z – The Legend Continues, but what’s next?

The current-generation 370Z was released in the 2009 model year, and has been essentially unchanged for the past seven years. Many of us at NICOclub and the rest of the autmotive world expected to see or hear about the next Z car for model year 2016. As you can see by the recently-obtained order sheet, it appears the current 370Z will continue to live on for at least one more model year, although not without some key changes. The available color combinations will change, and some interior...

VQ35DE Change Spark Plugs

Applied Vehicles: VQ35DE Engine Difficulty Rating: Estimated Labor Time: 2½ hours Estimated Total Cost: $20.00 Figured I’d put this out there for anyone who was interested in changing their spark plugs on their own but wasn’t feeling very comfortable. I have a 2007 M35x so, at the least, this would be the same for the 2006 M35. I haven’t seen the V8 or the 08/09 car so I can’t say if this process is any different. This should give you the general idea though. I took the...

Installing an Under Drive Pulley for the Infiniti VQ35DE

This instruction is specific to the VQ35 DE motor. Is to help guide you in the removal of the OEM pulley and installation of an aftermarket Under Drive Pulley. First jack up the car, (in my case, the lift) and remove the wheel and access cover which is held on with 5 clips. Here’s a tip: before you remove the belt, make a sketch of how it’s suppose to look like once you re-install the belt. We used the underside of the access panel. The flash kind a distorted the pic but you can see the...

Wireless OBD2 Scan Tool – Why Don’t You Have One?

Stop what you’re doing RIGHT NOW. Most are less than $20. In fact, I bought eight of the cheap $6 ones and gave TWO to each of my kids.

2014 Nissan Versa Note – First Drive / Review

The Versa Hatchback is completely redesigned for 2014, including a new name: the Note. The Versa Note is not the type of car I would be interested in buying. However, I do know someone who will soon be very interested in a cheap car that gets good gas mileage. Our teenage daughter. She came along with me on the test drive and she gave me her honest opinion on everything from the looks to performance. Her summary will follow mine at the end of this article. As always, I have to thank Charlie at...

2006 Nissan Versa vs. 2007 Nissan Sentra review

I took a test drive of a new ’07 Sentra today. In the interest of comparing oranges to something at least relatively close to an orange, I made a point of picking out a 6-speed Sentra (since my Versa is a 6-speed). Sentra test model was a 2.0 S with 6MT and no options. The Sentra shows that it is becoming more of a appeal-to-the-masses family car, rather than a more “basic” car (as it were) in the past. It felt quicker off the line than my V, and had no trouble barking the tires shifting...

2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo: The Anti-Tuner Car

Sentra fans have been wondering if their favorite Nissan model would ever return to its performance roots. After all, it’s been years since a Sentra Se-R Spec V version has seen the light of day, and the latest B17U platform has become more of a pedestrian people mover than a stoplight sleeper. Still, the seventh generation Sentra is Nissan’s third highest selling model, so no arguing its sales success. But with a shrinking market and few discernible customers for pocket rockets, some even...
