Maybe you guys can help me out. I have a 1983 280ZX Turbo and am experiencing an intermittant miss. I swear it is exactly the same thing that happened with two different 1982 turbos I had.
Basically, the car runs great, but after it warms up, and when idling at a light or wherever, then it will miss a bit ... it'll run good for a few seconds then kinda drop out and miss slightly -- not too hard, then run good for a few more seconds and miss again. It's almost like an intermittant flutter. It doesn't happen at regular intervals, but is more random.
I am no repairman, but I have already changed out the plugs, wires, cap and rotor. I'm guessing it is either plugged injectors or a vacuum hose. I looked over the hoses, but didn't know what I was looking for, and don't know how to check the injectors.
Also, I thought about cleaning the injectors, but have heard that the chemicals can be very damaging to them. Is that true?

Thanks for any help!!!
Brian

I dont have a clue what your problem could be, but you asked how to check your injectors. A simple way to do so is to place a screw driver on one and put you ear on the end of it. Listen to all of them. If any sound different, then it is probably bad. sorry i couldnt be of any more help.
