Replacing a Nissan starter motor on the 3 L V-6 is a fairly common repair on this engine. Shortly after I purchased my 1988 Nissan 300ZX one of the first repairs that was needed was replacement of the starter motor.
Back in 2012 my Nissan Altima starter switch failed to work. I took the car to a Nissan dealership location and it was determined that the brake light switch was faulty and had to be replaced. On March 15, 2015, the car exhibited the same issue, starter switch failed to work again. This time I took it to an independent mechanic, who again had to replace the same part, the brake like switch. I suspect that there are more Nissan vehicles with this same issue. The recall should be extended to other models and be tested for an issue with the starter/brake light switch.
This was the last time I had to replace the Nissan starter motor on my 300ZX. The reason this was the last time is because during every oil change I would take a few rags and cover the starter before I began to loosen the engine oil filter. The rags would soak up the oil and when the maintenance operation was completed I cleaned the area with electrical cleaner so it looked like brand-new again.
