    You happen to know how to clean one of these things? Havent had a good look of it off the car. I've seen someone say carb or t.b. cleaner. Do I shoot it down the hole?
  3. Rough cold start

    I'll have to check it. Saw other posting that worded the issue better than I did. Hoping it's not stuck and a good once over with some cleaner will do

    This started after filling my 77 280z with unethonal gas for the first time, 87 octane. Normally I put 91 regular. Dont know if related but need to specify. Since then, first crank of the morning is difficult. When I turn the key to start, the engine turns almost immediately matched with...

  6. Engine rpm lowers in gear

    Freaking awesome to know. Didnt know if there might be a small vaccum leak since that's what people with rough idle say is the culprit. Either way, thanks
  7. Engine rpm lowers in gear

    70-83 Tech Discussion Forum
    Hey guys, Wondering what anyone thinks of this. Not too too savvy with cars yet so hoping someone can shed some light. Car starts up and idles around 900 to 1k. As soon as the tranny is in gear, reverse or drive, engine rpm drops to around 5-6-700 rpm. In park and neutral, jumps back up to 9...

  10. Cranks but wont start, fuel pressure and new plugs

    70-83 Tech Discussion Forum
    After diagnosis, Fuel pressure regulator broke the diaphragm which caused gas to go straight into intake, causing the flooding of the engine. 2. Ecu completely went out. I'm back on the road at least:/

  12. Cranks but wont start, fuel pressure and new plugs

    70-83 Tech Discussion Forum
    Forgot to say that I tried pulling the fuel pump relay, the white and black plugs by the drivers side. When disconnected the car turned over, chugged a few times and then died. When I plugged those two plugs in again, the car would just crank with no start. Does this confirm the ignition module?

  17. Coolant collecting on INTAKE

    70-83 Tech Discussion Forum
    I've noticed it once before but I am collecting coolant on the top of my intake manifold, in between the first two intakes from the front of the car. I believe those are 5 and 6. I can't really tell where it accumulates from and I can't tell exactly how long it takes to accumulate but I think...

    Wondering how dangerous it is to drive an auto 280z through the low, 2nd and then drive to hit 3rd? Would love to hit just a bit higher rpms but all sense is telling me that this is dangerous to the trannys health. Can anyone verify?
  19. Wheel hub bearing question

    70-83 Tech Discussion Forum
    Pdx thanks again! I have no issue with the bearings or anything like that, which is why I would hate to touch anything inside there right now. But, a new rotor is always nice! Especially since I bought it, but like I said , that bearing is ...alot more than what I wanted to do right now...
  20. Wheel hub bearing question

    70-83 Tech Discussion Forum
    Sounds good, The only reason why I'm trying to not change them is it will be another delay in my brake job, i.e. waiting for parts to ship etc. If I do find the need change the bearings, I need to change the races as well, right? This brake job has become a bigger job as I go in.. Thanks for...
