Infiniti G35 2006 sedan

Asked by Apr 02, 2017 at 03:52 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a few questions, being a girl I know nothing
about this. I just bought a Infiniti G35 2006 looks
brand new . One owner on Carfax the guy took it to
Nissan plant for regular tune ups, well taken care
of. As I was driving I would turn the corner and
when I break (seems only to do this when I turn
the corner) the breaks or something in the front
left side of tire etc locks up and slides. Chugs to. I
replaced the cam shaft censors,topped off the
break fluid. No luck. I spent all my money in this
car and can’t afford to take it to the shop to spend
hundreds just to get looked at. Any clue of what it
could be? I have not yet looked at the wheel
censor. It has a locked lug not on each wheel and
of course car didn’t come with the tool to get that
off. I hope it’s not the engine. But I don’t think it is.
Plugged up the coder everything has green check
mark no codes are popping up of anything wrong
with it. Also the slip light comes on when this
happens and sometimes stays on. No other lights
came on

Nothing wrong with being a girl! :) I recommend solving the wheel lock problem first. If you get a flat you will be SOL. As far as the lock up issue the ABS should prevent that. Are there any warning lights on? If there are any ABS codes you would need an ABS reader to see them.

Lift the front left side up and see if you can spin the wheel. If it does not spin, then it probably is a brake caliper frozen up or the brake hose may be collapsed internally, not allowing the flow of brake fluid to allow the caliper to release. Wouldn't know until you jacked it up. Also may want to run some fuel injection cleaner threw the gas.
