DIY Replacement 2000 Infiniti I30 Dual Radiator Fan Motor Assembly

This is DIY for a 2000 Infiniti I30 Dual Radiator Fan Motor Assembly replacement .

If you notice that at a stop light your A/C gets hot but when you drive the A/C gets cool or your temperature rises slightly on a stop but lowers on the drive on a dual radiator fan that means the A/C condenser fan is NOT working - Both fans should come on when you have the A/C on no matter how cold your motor is that is a easy test .

Remove the clips that hold the intake and then all you have to do is remove the upper hose that is connecting to the radiator only - Then disconnect any electrical plugs - Remove the two bolts holding the assembly to the radiator 

Pull the assembly up and out - Make sure you put the heat shield from the old assembly to the new on to keep the motor from burning out from your exhaust pipe - Reconnect the plugs - Put your A/C on to make sure both fans go on 

This DIY did not take long

DIY Replacing Harmonic Balancer 2000 Infiniti I30

This is a DIY on how to replace a harmonic balancer on a 2000 Infiniti I30 

First thing you must do is to remove the belts - You have the belt adjuster to the right that tightens the alternator and air condition - Then to your left you have the power steering pump that needs to be loosen as well - Once you have the belts off then you can continue

With a impact wrench you remove the middle bolt then with a pulley gently remove the harmonic balancer 

Make sure after you remove the harmonic balancer check to make sure the key is still in place and there is no scratches or burrs on the shaft - Then you can replace the timing cover shaft seal 

Make sure the two balancer are equal - Gently slide the balancer where the key will slide through the balancer with our force 

Then with a impact you can tighten the harmonic balancer - then you can put the belt back on and check for leaks 

This is the best time to replace both belts and any other parts that look worn out especially on a car with over 100.000 miles on it whether leaking or not replace now then later

DIY Replacing A/C & Alternator Belt Adjuster 2000 Infiniti I30

 This is a DIY on a 2000 Infiniti I30 on how to replace a alternator and a/c belt tensioner

First thing you do is to loosen up the belt from the top where the adjusting screw is located 

Once the belt is loose then you can remove the belt then take the pulley off - from there you remove the three bolts holding the bracket 

This is what it looks like apart - you must use the old brace for the tensioner 

This is what it looks like before you install the belt tensioner back 

You have to put this back first before you put the pulley wheel 

Then adjust the belt with a new belt 

Make sure the belt is properly tight so you can avoid squeaking - this belt is in the front of the power steering belt - might be a good time to change both

DIY Idle Air Control Motor Replacement & Learning 2000 Infinit I30

This is a DIY on a 2000 Infiniti I30 on how to replace the Idle Air Control Motor With Out Replacing the Valve .


You have to remove the air filter box because the idle air control valve is located under the throttle body - which has to hoses that the coolant runs through to keep your throttle body warm on cold days - remember to check all the hoses while your there - 

There you will see the idle air control valve - but in this DIY we will be only removing the idle air control motor because the valve is OK - You will locate the two screws that hold the control motor - Once you remove the motor you will see some coolant come out do not panic that is OK - clean area out with brake clean before putting the new one in - make sure you know where the two screws came out because there are four holes and you want to make sure you put them back where the old holes were used - One you replace the control motor you need to put back the air intake box back together so that the mass air flow is connected so that you can do the relearning procedure below 


Idle Air Volume Learning is an operation to learn the idle air volume that keeps each engine within the specific range. It must be performed under any of the following conditions:
  • Each time electric throttle control actuator or ECM is replaced.
  • Idle speed or ignition timing is out of specification.


Before performing Idle Air Volume Learning, make sure that all of the following conditions are satisfied. Learning will be cancelled if any of the following conditions are missed for even a moment.
  • Battery voltage: More than 12.9V (At idle)
  • Engine coolant temperature: 70 - 100 C (158 - 212 F)
  • Park/neutral position (PNP) switch: ON (Shifter in Park or Neutral)
  • Electric load switch: OFF (Air conditioner, headlamp, rear window defogger)
  • Steering wheel: Neutral (Straight-ahead position)
  • Vehicle speed: Stopped
  • Transmission: Warmed-up (Drive vehicle for 10 minutes.)



  • 1
    Turn ignition switch "ON" and wait at least 1 second.
  • 2
    Turn ignition switch "OFF" and wait at least 10 seconds.
  • 3
    Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
  • 4
    Check that all items listed under the topic PREPARATION (previously mentioned) are in good order.
  • 5
    Turn ignition switch "OFF" and wait at least 10 seconds.
  • 6
    Start the engine and let it idle for at least 30 seconds.
  • 7
    Disconnect throttle position sensor harness connector (brown), then reconnect it within 5 seconds.

  • 8
    Wait 20 seconds.
  • 9
    Make sure that idle speed is within specifications. If not, the result will be incomplete. In this case, find the cause of the problem by referring to the NOTE below.
  • 10
    Rev up the engine two or three times. Make sure that idle speed and ignition timing are within specifications.
  • Idle speed = 700 ± 50 rpm (in P or N position)
