In that case, I would strongly suggest you do your own research to make sure they are indeed the correct parts that you're looking for. They may be valid numbers for a cover and a gasket, but are they the actual cover and gasket you're looking for?


FYI, they have IPB's and part numbers here: http://infiniti.sewellparts.com/part...edan-2008.html

When I started my car this morning I noticed that the engine was shaking the car (no rattles), and the shake went away. I'm also dealing with the P0021 code, so i'm hoping it's an issue with the gasket and oil pressure.

So recently I borrowed an OBD2 reader from a friend and cleared the codes, topped up the oil. I drove for about 60 miles on the highway and city without the code, stopped to get gas, and it came back shortly after...

Any ideas?

We don't have the paper gaskets that blow out like the V36 models do. More than likely if you let your car sit for about 20 minutes and check the oil it is probably low. If it is low, just top it off and reset the ses light and you should be fine. Hope this helps bro...

Any chance that an exhaust valve timing control solenoid valve would fix the P0024 code I have?

The mechanic that did my plugs just cleaned everything and went back with some RTV high temp silicone seal.

Anyone point to a good DIY on the gasket replacement described by the OP?
Also if you're going through the effort to do this repair are there other things you should consider at the same time?

I had my gaskets replaced by the dealer. They had a total of 200.00 for the parts and 1300.00 for 9.1 hrs of labor. Car runs much better than when I dropped it off. I can get you a breakdown of the parts and stuff if yall need it. Dont' know if itll help much.

Hi everyone, quick question. I have an 08 G35X that is putting out codes for P0011 and P0021. My car has 108K miles on it, so I really don't want to spend $2K or $3K to have them rip apart the cam and fix this gasket problem. Can someone tell me if I keep driving my car with this problem, will I be seriously damaging my engine? I don't understand engines enough to know if this gasket did blow out, will it seriously harm my engine to keep driving it? The car starts, and runs great with no issues other than the check engine light on! Thank you..

Well, I drove my car for about 5 months while I was trying to figure it out and fix it myself. Then I had no choice but to give in and take it to the dealer because I was up for state inspections. Regardless, the only issue you will run into is not passing inspection I would assume. My car "seemed" to be running great but after getting it back and driving it, it was completely different and felt more like a restored engine. I would maybe check with a independent repair shop and see if they can do it for less than the $1500 that I paid to the dealership. Hope you find a resolution!

Rahul-my local shop doesn't feel comfortable ripping into it without knowing the exact problem. What did your dealer replace for the $1,500? Just that gasket ? Did they say the gasket was destroyed? thx!
