  1. Thankyou, I will check for debris in the tank again an see if I find anything near the pump and filter. If that is not the problem I will start a new thread
  2. Hello everyone, I may have the same problem going on now myself. I have a 1982 280zx with the non turbo 2.8 straight six. The engine temp is staying around 180f to 165f, oil pressure is good and the car started off fine. It cranked right up and drove for 2 and a half hours and started loosing power. I have never been on a long trip with the car so this is the first time I have had this issue. I pull off to the side of the road an it will sometimes shut off before I can turn it off to cool. I sit for 30 min or so and it cranks right up and runs with no problems for maybe 40 min or so and then does the same thing again and I repeat the process. Any ideas of the possible cause of this. I was thinking a possible heat soak like condition while driving could be causing this. I do not currently have a way to measure the temp in the engine bay as I am on my way to Manassas Virginia from charleston south carolina
