Hey I have a 1978 280Z that used to run rich, and i got that fixed and painted it last week. But now when I go to start it it'll run then just die. And when I give it gas it gives me a lean "pop" and finally catches up alittle..

then sometimes it whon't start at all,and i bought a new coil ant stuff.
Thanks in adv.

1. What did they fix when it ran too rich?

2. Your problem sounds as though it could be timing related (too far retarded). Is your distributor loose? can you turn it by hand? Whats your timing set at?

Check your connections by the air flow meter and computer.. I had the same problem.. mine had a little corrosion at the terminals... now it runs fine.. try it.. good luck
