#24 of 32 Ding after 105km/h
Jul 14, 2009 (11:59 am)
I have a 92 twin turbo and whenever i reach 105km/h my car makes a ding noise.
Its not a ticking sound like a hydraulic lifter makes but a dinging sound like a bell. Nothing like a warning light shows up so would like to know if anyone out there has

#26 of 32 Turbo;s wont spin after 6 months in storage
Mar 15, 2010 (7:30 pm)
The turbo's were spinning up well 6 month ago but other then having someone start the car and drive it around the block a couple time the turbo's have not had the opportunity to kick in. Now, after taking the car up into higher RPM's the turbo wont kick in. Do they freeze up without use or ???????

I had the same problem with my 84 300 zx and it was the switch under the brake pedal. It's an easy fix but a tight squeeze to get to.

I'm replacing my struts in a 93 300zx 2 + 2 non turbo. Looking at KYB and Tokico. Any suggestions or comments? JF
#30 of 32 1985 300zx will not stay running really need some help
May 23, 2010 (1:13 am)
Okay I've had this car 4 years no major problems with it. I was driving it last weekend and thought I'd fill it up. So I put 10 gallons of gas into it started right up drove it two miles down the road and the car shut off completly. I go to start it up again and it would start but run really ruff sputtering and would turn off after about 30 seconds. I checked the spark plugs they smelled like gas and were black. I just changed the rotary button and distributor cap. The button was very worn out but I changed it a year ago and haven't drove it all that much during the year. It is getting gas and I checked for spark from the number one spark plug and I seen it sparking. I hear the fuel pump running and I just changed the fuel filter. When it was running for the 30 seconds now I would press on the accelerator and it would do nothing to cause the motor to rev up. I am very confused and I really don't know what to do please help..

On my 84 the problem was small rubber bumpers that the switches hit when the break pedal is released. they rot and fall out over time.
#32 of 32 Rack and pinion steering and timing belt
Dec 28, 2010 (11:56 pm)
I have a 93 300zx. The steering was grabbing when it was cold and then it would become fairly smooth. I took it to a mechanic, who worked as a mechanic for Nissan 23 years, and he says that the rack is leaking fluid. He would replace the rack, when he finds the part, for $600. He told me that the steering would not lock up; it would just become more like manual when it begins to totally wear out. For those in the know, how is this price wise. The car has 113,000 miles and I doubt that it has had a timing belt. (Just bought it) The same mechanic said it would be $700 to change the timing belt. That would include replacing the water pump, which he would do while changing the belt. Am I headed for trouble not having changed the belt and what do you think about the charge. Thanks in advance for any response.
