You have to be sure it's the chain noise. Watching Youtube under "Honda S2000 Engine Noise", the noise is louder when engine is warm and revved up.

Hi npriest, I just found this topic on the forum; my '04 I35 has been having this noise for two years, it's exactly as what you described, only right turn. Curious about if the front engine mount was truly the remedy to eliminate the noise since you had the dealer replaced it?

Hi, 04i35. Sorry-- haven't been on the forum in a while and didn't notice your query. Yes, the noise did abate with replacing the front engine mount. Sorry again for the late reply. If I remember (been a while) it was about $500 P&L at dealer.

I hate to sound really ignorant but in the original posting there was a link to an "Official" Infiniti site and I look at the exploded diagrams but what is the "motor mount" called????
If I were to ask at a parts store, do they resemble any old motor mounts from cars of the 60's era? (I doubt that !!)

Good morning fellow Infiniti I owners... I have been working on this issue on and off for about a year now... this was my original post:
) Battery and Brake lights have started flickering off and on during driving the car. The car momentarily loses power, RPM's go down and I coast briefly and then power resumes...I thought it was the alternator but I had a new alternator put on a year ago- I also had to put in a new battery at the same time, so these aren't more than a year old. I drove up to Advance -hooked it up for me..Alternator, Battery, and charging system came up fine.....I took it to local garage and left it for 5 days. They drove it off and on, put it on diagnostic machine and NOTHING!! The mechanic said he couldn't find anything wrong..no codes besides an oxygen sensor.. I left -on my way home...yup, you guessed it...brake and battery lights flicker and car loses power...but it never completely goes out...Does anyone have any idea? I'm trying to avoid $$$ for all kinds of useless diagnostic tests that tell me my car is ok...has this happened to anyone else?? I hate to pay for another new alternator/battery if there is some underlying little problem that is hard to detect...Thanks so much...
FFW to today (May 2013) I have had two new alternators put in since January 2011- 2 new batteries...took my car to an "electrical" guy and he said my alternator was putting out correct "amps" or whatever it is that alternators do...I drove it home from his shop and AGAIN battery light/brake lights flash and then car dies..loses power as I am driving..It's been parked for about 6 months but I am in need of my car so...Anyone have any idea of what UNDERLYING electrical issue I could be having? Something has to be messing up my alternator...3 alternators in 2 years? HELP!!!

It should be a short circuit somewhere in the wires before coming to the fuse box. If the short happens after the fuse box, it would blow the fuse. If there is a wire chafed to car body part at the time, it should create a short circuit and paralyze electrical system. The only thing to find out is thoroughly inspection the wires.

Check out the 2013 Engine Recall from Infiniti for older I35 models, sounds like the problem you're having...
ENGINE RECALL: ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, THE CIRCUIT BOARD FOR THE CRANK POSITION SENSOR OR CAM POSITION SENSOR MAY HAVE AN IMPROPER SOLDER JOINT DUE TO SOLDER DEFORMATION CAUSED BY HEAT STRESS ACCELERATED BY THE EXISTENCE OF FLUX RESIDUE DURING THE SOLDERING PROCESS. THIS COULD CAUSE THE "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" WARNING LIGHT TO COME ON, CREATE A NO START CONDITION, CAUSE REDUCED ENGINE POWER, OR CAUSE THE ENGINE TO STOP RUNNING WITHOUT WARNING DURING VEHICLE OPERATION, WHICH COULD RESULT IN A CRASH.

What year's of Infiniti I-35 are they recalling? I have a 2003 model

Wow! Thanks! I will be calling my nearest Infiniti dealer. BTW, I had my alternator replaced AGAIN and the car is holding on...I am going to get this recall looked at though! I can't say thanks enough!
