Read up on the fsm....i think thy crank sensor can throw this code as well...my comp test was 210 avg when I was chasing my issue....could be a vtc hub issue/ cam chain...they are easily damaged from low oil.

Joe: I am not a gearhead here so I am having a hard time figuring out what i need to read up on.. unfortunately I have been out of the state for 3 weeks so i haven't had any time to work on this

I have also called and left my corp contact a message as i am not happy with my overall nissan experience. My local dealership stated to me that the motor was getting no spark and would not turn over at all no matter what they tried to do. The fact that some non nissan tech got it started in 5 minutes is whack. I really hope the rep calls me back today to discuss options

FSM = Factory Service Manual. Contains diagnostic procedures and explanations of what the DTCs mean. See link in my sig.

I think engine control is section 18? Do a control f abd search your dtc code and you will find the applicable dg flow charts. Don't exepect much from Nissan, you will talk to a case manager who knows nothing about cars... and unless nissan is different they cannot force the dealer to refund or do anything your best bet is the gm or dealer principal.

So if it were to be a VTC hub/chain issue is that something huge to replace? full motor replacement? what are we talking?

My car is having all of the symptoms your car had! What ended up being the problem?

Had exactly the same problem. The camshaft sprocket was out of position. When you disconnect the camshaft sensor it will start, but will run in "limp home" mode, max out arount 3,000 RPM. Camshaft sprockets cost about a grand a pop plus the labour, but it beats the hell out of replacing the whole engine. Make sure you test compression though. Chances are it was running low on oil that caused the problem in the first place and there may be other damage.
