    Hi everyone I recently bought a used 1983 280zx that doesn't start. the fuel pump was replaced and is not the issue, but still doesn't prime or run when the key is turned. we tested the spark plugs and we have spark. so we hotwired the pump and fuel started leaking from the intake manifold...

    Hello everyone, I am experiencing an unusual problem with my 1980 NA 280ZX. Sometimes when I'm driving, after the car heats up it will idle high ~2500 rpm then sometimes it goes back down to normal later. It happens about 80% of the times I drive it, and doesn't seem to be running rich, or lean...

    My son was replacing the Alternator on his 1983 280zx and hooked it up wrong. We have lost all interior power to the car now. We are told it might be a mega fuse. I am wondering if it is a mega fuse, where it would be located and what amps it should be. Or if it might be a different problem...

    The previous owner of my 1981 280ZX said that the heater was “disconnected” so it won’t work. I would like to reconnect the heater so it works, but can’t seem to find much help online with this. How would I go about reconnecting this? I have most dash panels off so I can see inside where the...

    Got my 79' 280z back from the shop recently for a diagnosis. It died on me after a bit of spirited driving one afternoon. I thought it might have been an issue with the cruise control because I had flicked it on and off a few times to see if it still worked. Turns out it was actually a bad MAF...

    My 1981 280ZX has been running rough intermittently. No rhyme or reason. Sometimes it does it when cold, and some times it does it when warm. Periodically it tries to overheat. I now have a fuel smell in the coolant surge tank. Ideas?? Head gasket perhaps? Or intake/exhaust gasket? I did a...
