    I have a stupid question but I can’t get a clear answer. I’m not sure if my 280zx has a turbo or not. Based on the VIN I don’t think it does, but I swear there is a turbo affixed to the engine. Can anybody confirm if the attached picture shows a 280zx turbo that has been added aftermarket? Thank...

    Okay so, this is my first project car and first car that is older (83 datsun 280zx NA) I'm having a weird problem. The car starts and runs fine cold. Can drive it for hours with no problems. Can turn it off after its warm and then instantly turn it back on and it runs no problem. BUT if I turn...

    Recently acquired an 83 280zx NA that had been sitting for about 18 years. Dropped the fuel tank, replaced the fuel pump and the coil and actually got it running on Thursday the 3rd. It started and idled for the next 2 days. On Sunday, I go to crank it up and it just spins. I have spark, I have...

    Okay so I have seen a few post over this but they all seem to be a little over the place so I thought I'd ask about what I found here. I have a 1983 datsun 280zx non turbo. Just rebuilt the transmission and now need to decide on what oil to use. In my research I read to replace the differential...

    Hi, I’m trying to replace some bad glass fuses on the z. I’ve had a hard time finding ones that are similar to original. Do these look okay? The new ones seem to be bigger than the previous and the wire inside the bulb isn’t cut the same. Does anyone have recommendations of where to get...

    From what I have seen on undercoating on here, all the post our outdated. The newest post I saw was from 2004 I think, so My question is what are yalls thoughts on undercoating? I just got a 1983 Datsun 280zx and it has some surface rust on the under frame which I was going to grind off, then...

    Hey all, I’m onto the rust repair portion of my restoration. There’s a few spots where the rust didn’t work it’s way through the metal and is pitted out. My question is, if I clean up the pitted out area, treat the metal with rust inhibitors, and then smooth it out with body filler, is that an...

    Hey everybody. I just finished gutting the interior on my 1982 280zx restoration I’m working on. I found a large rust spot that will need to be replaced over the passenger side rear tire. I was wondering if anybody had any tips on how to repair this, or if there is anybody who sells a...

    I think I have the wrong intake manifold for my 82 280zx. I’ve been having issues of it idling very high (2500-3000 rpm). I’ve replaced a lot of hoses, and put a new gasket on the intake and checked to see if it was warped (all good there). Only thing I notice now is that around the injectors...

    I’ve been battling with the drivers side door on my 280zx. It won’t open from the inside or the outside. After several hours of using various slim Jim’s and coat hangers I finally gave up that method after I was almost certain I was pulling on the right part. I finally (begrudgingly) cut through...

    Hey I’m brand new to this forum. I just picked up an 1982 280zx I’m planning on restoring. This has been my dream car for a long time, but I have a lot to do before it’s up and running. First major issue I’m having in the drivers side door won’t open. I can’t get it to open either from the...

    Hi, I can't set the time in my 1981 280zx digital clock. I was wondering if this is a known issue or if there are any fixes or if I'm just doing it wrong.

    I got my car one year ago and it's a 1981 280ZX 2 plus 2 non-turbo Edition. The car went and rode very well for the first year with only 46 original thousand miles on it. Since then I've made some modifications to it and made it a little my own and added about 10-15k MI to it. The car has worked...

    on the old ignition on my 1983 280ZX it had 2 extra wires, when I bought a new ignition it didn't have the wires for those 2 from the car, the starter relay clicks but it does not turn over the motor. Are those wires for antitheft purposes? and where can I get my hands on a Ignition switch?
