Ron, I had a similar problem with my 83ZX. The car would be running fine then all of a sudden cut out, as if I had let my foot off the gas. Pressing the gas pedal produced no response and the car would jerk violently. It was the Electronic Control Module on the 83ZX. A costly item for me at $500.00 from a dealer. If this is your problem you can probably find one for a lot less from someone on this board. Hope this helps.

Check Ignition Control Module

I was having a simliar problem with my 80 280zx where I was driving and it would cut in and out. I got a new ignition control module (the thing on the side of the distributor) for 50 bucks from an overpriced junkyard. New from 'Pepboys' was like 150 bucks. Hope this works for ya.

Ron:

I picked an ignition control unit (also known as the transistor control module that is located below the passenger side dash) from ALL Z East for a very reasonable price. I have a Dattsun 280Z Coupe76. I replaced mine because I had no spark and the car would not start. Contact [email protected] if you want some advice before deciding to order. The parts are pre-tested. Good luck. Carl
