The fix for my 1999 infiniti i30 with the same problem was the knock sensor. I was told and read the about MAF sensor, but this was not the problem, and be aware of just repairing a lot of items that will more than likely not be the fix(dealerships and mechanics are known for this) This fix helped with problem of the car stalling out.

#681 of 688 96 Infinity i30 - stalls out
May 03, 2013 (6:16 pm)
Can anyone suggest what may be causing my infinity to stall out? Whenever the tachometer gets to around 2500 rpm, the engine starts to chock out. It acts like its starving for gas. I have had the repair shop replace several sensors (mass air flow sensor, cam shaft sensor, crankshaft sensor, throttle sensor). Also they replaced the fuel pump inside the gas tank and fuel filters. Whenever the weather outside is cooler (below 70F) the car seems to run OK. It acts up mostly when the weather outside is hot and sunny. It has nothing to do with the engine heat, it's just the heat outside (ambient temperature). My car runs good in the winter, fall and early spring. It only acts up in the heat of the summer.
I tried leaving my windows down during the day, thinking that the ambient heat might be causing an electrical short, that might be causing my car to stall out? I am at the witts end, trying to figure this out. Can ANYONE please give me some advise on what may be my problem with my 96 infinity?

My car doesn't stall but it won't start in the heat. Mine might be an ignition switch. I'm getting it checked soon
#683 of 688 Infiniti i30 will not start after sitting out in sun/heat
May 20, 2013 (9:05 am)
As the weather's getting warmer, I've been running into a strange issue with my car. The car will not start when it's been sitting out in the sun/noshade on 80 degree+ days.
When I attempt to start, there is:
- no "click"
- no noise whatsoever from the starter
- no changes in dials on the dashboard
- dashboard check battery light turns on
- A/C, stereo, headlights, etc. turn on
This has happened several times - always on hot days when the car has been sitting out in the sun. It will consistently fail to start if I attempt to start repeatedly. I've had success getting the car to by opening the hood and letting the engine "air out", when it's not particularly hot out, or leaving it for a few hours and returning in the evening when it is cooler.
Yesterday, it failed to start right after I pumped gas in the afternoon. I was able to get it started by waiting a few minutes with the hood open.
I've had the car for five months and never had any issues starting in the winter.
It's 13 years old and has about 110,000 miles on it. The battery is newish.

The ignition switch. It's a $31.12 part at checkers. I had the same problem and finally replaced it last week and it works perfect now!

Thanks for the tip!
I'm going to try this test (from about.com) to confirm the ignition switch is the problem next time it happens. I think it's possible that the starter itself could be going bad - hopefully this (below) should isolate the issue?
Bad Igntion Switch: If your battery checks out, but the starter is still silent, it may be a faulty ignition switch. Turn the key to the on position (not all the way to start). If the red warning lights on your dash don't light up (and your battery connections are clean), the ignition switch is bad. If they do light up, turn the key to the start position. The dash warning lights should turn off at this key position (most cars). If you're not sure, turn on the headlights. When you try to start the car, the lights should either dim (a lot) or turn off completely. If they do, your ignition switch should be ok. If not, the switch will need replacement.

I spend hours looking for the same problem on my son's Infinity I 30. The problem was on the main harness to the engine by the battery box. Underneath there is the connector for the starter and that was the problem. I moved the wire and the car cranked right up. Check it out you might have the same problem.
#687 of 688 Car wont start!
Aug 05, 2013 (5:48 am)
After driving car around all day, turning car off long enough to pump gas my car will not start. If I let the car sit for a few minutes, maybe 4 or 5 minutes, the car will start. My car is a 2001 Infiniti I30t with 159,000 mi. Can anyone shed any light as to why this is happening?
