We still do not have a TPS adjustment write up here.

If human beings were like Z cars, we would all be going to the doctor a lot more often.

Re: Z32 Tech - Frequently Asked Questions *** NEW USERS READ HERE FIRST ***

To any new member that takes the time to read FAQ first I caution you that when posting for info please give a brief history of your Car (year, model, miles and condition) to help those that would like to help. There are a few which will look for the smallest flaw in your post to accentuate your pilgrim status but as an overall site most will give freely of their knowledge. We all start somewhere and ZCars is a great finish line.

1990 300ZX 2+2 the only way to go
