I am going to buy a 85 turbo 300zx with 99,346 miles. The owner called me to say he was driving the car when all of the sudden the car shut off. He replaced the fuel pump, car only runs for a few seconds. The digital cluster says there are 2 gallons left before an empty tank. Jump started the car and it ran only for a few seconds and the batt light was on the whole time. Bad altenator not holding a charge or something deeper ? Owner claims this has never happened with the car before.....2nd owner timing belt skipped at 60,000 miles but all the head work was done and it ran good before...passed smog. Any help or suggestions are welcome and Z you guys at MSA next weekend.

when my alternator died, I didn't get the normal dummy light flash. My digidash just shut off, and car started running sluggishly.
