  1. How to test fuel pump relay?

    Oh! Sorry skipped my mind. 77 280z, 83zx turbo motor swap.
  2. How to test fuel pump relay?

    Sorry I didn't follow this. I was looking in the FSM, but was having difficulty finding the testing procedure .
  3. I was wondering if someone could tell me how to test my fuel pump relay with a multimeter? I was driving last night and my car started sputtering and running really lean and eventually just died. It would start and idle choppy until i pressed on the gas killing it. This morning when I went to go call a tow I noticed that it now only starts and immediately dies afterwards even with a jump.
  4. 280zx turbo engine sputtering popping wont rev past 2k rpm

    SOLVED!! Was a wet Throttle Position Sensor (or valve). Removed it and ran compressed air through the opening and now the motor runs fine.

  6. 280zx turbo engine sputtering popping wont rev past 2k rpm

    Sorry should of clarified that. Its running very lean. I believe you're right about it being the ignition system. My distributor cap and rotor are less than 3 years old so I wouldn't think that would be a problem. When I parked it yesterday it ran normally. It rained overnight and the problem seemingly came out of nowhere. I'll check the cap and rotor now.
  7. Cross post from troubleshooting Hello, I went to drive my car to the gym this morning I it is running horribly. Yesterday it ran perfectly fine, built boost seemed normal. It starts normally, but then starts to get slightly choppy and when I rev it it wont go past 2k rpm and is sputtering and popping all over. I have a wideband 02 sensor installed and when I start to rev the engine, the gauge goes crazy and reads its maximum (- - -). I disconnected the 02 gauge last night when trying to mount it a different location, but I thought that had nothing to do with the engine since I'm running a stock 83 engine and management system. (Previous owner was about to megasquirt, but sold it before finishing). I disconnected this connection and tried to rev the engine and seemed to be running early identical to when it was connected (barely at all at rpm): https://imgur.com/a/q7at5 Small Streamable link (44 sec): https://streamable.com/nzztz

  9. 1972 240z Interior Trim

    I recently purchased these the other day thinking that one of the rear interior tail light panels would fit in my 77 280z. After about 10 minutes I quickly realized it would require to much modification and didn't want to ruin the piece. Had a buddy who I thought would want them, but he decided on stripping his interior in favor of a cage/track setup. Shipping out Washington D.C. area. $50 for the quarter panel set (driver sided is the one with the cracks) $60 for the quarter window set (will throw in dashcap things don't know what those are really) $20 for each rear taillight cover panel $20 for defroster grill. Or $100 for all plus shipping Album Link: https://imgur.com/a/J4vGm

  11. Valve Cover Breather and General "What is this"

    Thanks I downloaded a few I'll read up on it. I believe everything is plugged since the car runs fine and there seems to be many areas plugged with bolts.
  12. Hello, I recently got my car running this past week after it was in hibernation for over a year. I bought the car in 2014 and never took the time to learn much about what I had. I was hoping someone could help me figure out what has been done to my engine. To my knowledge the motor and computer is from an '83 zx turbo. Also I told by another user that my valve cover breather hose is causing a major vaccum leak. What should I do? This album is from a previous post, but it has a few good pictures of the engine bay and motor. http://imgur.com/a/4uGkb

    Wow, I really wasn't expecting such a thorough response! Thanks a million ZHoob2004. I'm going to start tackling the quicker issues tomorrow. Hopefully I'll find out if I need to purchase anything by Sunday. I'll definitely be asking more questions across the forum. That breather hose did confuse me, I'll going to figure out a fix ASAP.

    Thanks NewZed. I'll start posting specific questions regarding the pictures in the sub-forums.
