P0335 Engine Code--Recall?
Took the car to Firestone dealer because it is dying (full loss of power) for a second or two, followed by return to normal power. Check Engine light came on. Firestone diagnosed P0335, said it's covered by recall, take it to Nissan. Firestone also printed recall notice for me. It lists 4 Sentra VIN ranges, including 3N1*B*1**3L 556548-730379
My VIN is 3N1AB51D53L717422, which falls in that range. Nissan dealer, and now Nissan NA say it is not affected. Symptoms are exactly the same as mentioned in recall NTB03-124, issued 12/19/03. This is a safety hazard, it is my son's first car, Nissan doesn't want to fix it under recall because their computer does not list it. Does a VIN range with wild cards not include all characters? If so, this car is definitely in the range. I am currently paying to have the sensors mentioned in the recall replaced at my cost, hoping to get reimbursed later. Any suggestions?
