.

Quite a few things could cause this but the most common is the throttle body and idle control system being gunked up with carbon build up .

Remove the throttle body and clean out well with throttle body cleaner spray
check the oparation of the idle control IACV

no warning or code orange light comes on few seconds but before it used to flash few seconds before starting ignighton

orange light comes on but does not flash like it use to

Expert:  indy-tech replied 2 years ago.
Okay Stewart, you need to get hooked up to see what malfunction codes you have, as when the fuel injection management system has a fault like yours it will store a malfunction code and trip on the check engine light solid , if it flashes then this means you have a misfire problem and will store a misfire code like a P0300 .

you are sure to have other codes so you need to find what these are ,then get back to me with the codes .

going to take it to Nissan dealer an explain it to him and let him drive it cos it has had 2 diagnostic checks all they said is that is intermitant

Expert:  indy-tech replied 2 years ago.
Stewart .

If the problem is intermittant and the check engine light comes ON then there should be a stored code to work from .

Let me know what happens .
