    Do I have to buy the sensor from a Nissan dealership or would another one work? If so which one would you recommend? Thanks

    Ok so I’ve changed the starter and the car turns over I know im Getting spark because I’ve sprayed ether/starting fluid down the intake box/air filter and it will run for a second or two and then die so I’ve got air and spark but no fuel. And I can’t change the fuel pump because the car itself...

    Looking for the fuel tank sending unit for 1979 to 1983 280zx. Condition is not the main concern, but would prefer if it was in working order. I am restoring a 1980 280zx and it does not currently have one. I am searching scrap yards ad well, but hoping this might be faster.

    I'll explain quick. I just replaced the head gasket on my 81 280ZX. While I had the head out, I decided I was going to replace the old trumpet style fuel rail with a billeted aluminum one. In total that was about all I did. Everything is back together now and on the test drive everything went...

    I've been having fueling issues, found it was my fuel pressure regulator. Put a aeromotive one on, now I'm idling high till I start adjusting the pressure to factory spec 36 psi. Now it's flooding itself. I've trying adjusting the factory AFM sensor but not much came from that. I'm just stuck of...

    Hello all, I hope to lean on all of your collective expertise. My 1976 280z will only start if I manually stick my hand in the AFM and open the flap slightly. Once it is running, I can make it run better or worse depending on how much I open it. As soon as I let it go it closes, and the car...

    I have been trying to start a recently purchased 83 280zx L28 but upon investigation, the fuel injectors are running wide open as soon as the key is turned on before cranking the motor. When I unplug the injectors they shut off which leads me to believe it is an electrical issue. I installed new...

    Hi, I recently bought an 87 z31 5 speed N/A less than a week ago and have been eagerly learning about the vehicle but can't seem to find a solid answer to my fuel issues. I have an analog dash in which the gas light is always illuminated. The main fuel gauge seems to reach empty when I fill it...
