    @rossman Sorry for the apparent "attitude". As I said before I don't know the steps and therefore now I understand where y'all "Vets" stand and what I need to do. Also if patience runs so thin it's as easy as continuing to scroll instead of trying to help but in the end the patience isn't there. Appreciate your insight buddy. Thanks.

    Everyone starts somewhere. The things I know, I taught myself. I just recently picked up the car! It's not like knowledge is gained in a day. I will continue my research thanks for your time.

    It's has the traits of that with heat soak but sometimes it goes beyond that and it goes over board. Well if it's just an over heating problem what would I do?

    Heat soaked

    When I park the car i leave the fan on to help the engine cool down but it only gets hotter while I'm not in the vehicle. The car continues to overheat as I'm driving and it will start to bog out to where it interferes and I am not able to give the car gas. I will be parked on the side of the highway for 10-15 (sometimes more) until it cools down and then I'm able to start it and leave .

    1977 280z, L28 5 speed. Well basically heat soaked would be the definition, you broke it down perfectly. Sometimes it will have a hard time starting but it takes quite a long time before I'm able to move the heated fuel out and get fresh fuel to the engine. I just wanna make it more reliable and eliminate that factor. Sorry for any confusion.

    @NewZed Sorry for the confusing words, I was busy earlier but also wanted to reply so you know I'm interested. I was referring to the fact that Pallnet may have different choices. I'm new to the Z world and learning slowly but I'm trying lol. So if the regulator is holding pressure now, then technically I would be able to use it with the new fuel rail right? @Neverdone Honestly, I can't tell you. This is me troubleshooting as best to my ability, I had a buddy (whom I acquired the car from) and he was the one informing me that the fuel was becoming to hot and I went from there. When I'm driving the car of the highway it seems as if the heat isn't really escaping when the engine is off and it just constantly stays hot. If I keep driving the car will start to bog out at higher rpms , and then eventually comes to a complete halt. I sit for say 10-15 minutes and it's cool enough to be driven.

    Thanks for the reply, do you have any suggestions? And also if I am going to upgrade the fuel rail would you recommend upgrade the regulator
  8. How's it goin? Well I have an issue with my 1977 280z 2+2, stock everything. I have run into the issue of the fuel becoming too hot and I just wanna know what others with the same or in the same general area. Any info/suggestions much appreciated!
