Sounds like magic. Mabe it's haunted. See a priest and have it exorcised.
Is it tail lights or brake lights? Are the front parking lights on? Do the tail lights get brighter when you apply the brake? If no, maybe it is the brake light switch.

Its just the tail lights. The brake lights dont come on when you press the brake pedal and the the front parking lights arent on.

Hey all! I just purchased a used 1986 300zx turbo 5spd. It runs great but always on the second startup. The first time I start it, especially in the mornings, it idles rough and stalls. Runs fine on second start after giving it a lil gas. It even does it when the engine is warm and has been running at running temp. Say I go to the store. In there for 5-10 min. I come out and start the car, it sputters and dies. I start it up again and give a little gas and presto! I'm just trying to figure out what could cause this. Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance! -Matt

My '88 Z31 2+2 finally died at 198,640 miles. The manual transmission gave out, of all things, but it has other needs as well. Bottom line is that, although the engine, body and interior are in good shape considering mileage and age, the cost of making the other repairs required to put it in usable shape exceed the value of the car by a significant amount.
Although this car has always been very well maintained and never abused, age and mileage have conspired to end its useful life. If I can't sell it as a project or parts car, I'll donate or scrap it.

FYI, I sold my '88 300ZX 2+2 for $495 from Craigslist. Someone who has a '87 2+2 will use the parts from that car to replace the parts on my '88 that wouldn't pass inspection. The good things on my car were the engine, straight body without rust, clean and well kept leather interior, four new tires (two had not yet been mounted), cold A/C and T-top that doesn't leak.
I was glad to sell it to someone who will drive it.

I just purchased this car about a hour ago. Drove it home about a hour ride ,but the car seems to be running hot . Were the cool and hot are normally it should be in the middle and this is very close to the hot . Anyone know what this could be?

Radiator would be a prime suspect. My 1988 300ZX (naturally aspirated) went through three of them, including the original. It was a low maintenance car overall, though.
Please let us know what you find.
