noise when pressing accelerator slightly

Asked by DavidSong Dec 11, 2018 at 06:51 PM about the 2015 INFINITI QX60 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After a service with my oil change, filter change, there is a clicking sound when I press the accelerator pedal slightly when driving or even parking. The noise is directly associated with the accelerator, only appears when I press the pedal slightly and dissappears when I press it further down, or take my foot off the pedal. It seems that I can control the noise with my foot on the accelerator pedal. Only a slight press with my foot produces this noise, and if I take my foot off the pedal, it is gone immediately. If I press it further down, it disspears too. I can also produce this noise when parked there.

You have a sticky throttle, Start by cleaning the throttle body, remove clean and lube the throttle cable, look under the dash for a binding pedal. I hope this helps take care

Since this problem started after an oil change, check the oil yourself to confirm it is at a safe level and there are no leaks at the oil filter or drain plug. You may be hearing the engine ticking and clicking from lack of oil pressure, especially at the lifters. These oil change guys work so fast they may have left something out....like the oil.

Any luck on what this is? I'm beginning to experience the exact same problem and I'm trying to figure it out.
