Your issue wasn't oil pump, it was oil gallery gaskets. It's an internal leak from the oil gallery covers, fairly common. Sounds like the dealer wasn't familiar with VQ's. Your 370Z suffers the same fate eventually, if it ever starts to lose oil pressure, address the gallery gaskets asap.

These cars do produce low oil PSI at idle (600RPM idle is about 15PSI) but should never read near zero.



Except the '07+ VQ35HR's.

they replaced those parts I believe 

didnt fix the problem

I had an 05 convertible LOVED IT  but it had low oil pressure and the dealer/warranty didn't want to address the issue head on  I tried to get them to replace the oil pump several times with no success they tried other things like front cover o rings and seals with no change, I ran 10/40 in the car rather then 5/30 just to boost the pressure enough to keep the light off at idle, at anything but idle the pressure would come up with no issues 

they said it was within all specs yet at idle the oil light came on and the gauge read near 0

next problem was with the nissan anti theft device that reads the chipped key ( no available fixes other then to remove that portion out of the BCM (body control module

doing that fixed the starting problem but made the red alarm light stay on at all times when driving the car 

ended up trading it in for an 2011 370z and dont regret it at all 

Hands down I think the 370 is superior over the 350

bought the 350 with 75k miles traded in at 125k miles 

bought the 2011 with 36k miles
