Nissan 300ZX Problems

Fuel Injectors May Fail and Cause Drivability Concerns

The fuel injectors can fail and cause drivability problems. Often there is no Check Engine light and the failures can be caused by corrosion of the connector, clogging beyond the point of cleaning, and/or internal failures.

Exhaust Manifold Can Warp and Cause the Studs to Break Off

The exhaust manifold often warps, breaking off the studs between the cylinder head and the exhaust manifold. The noise may be most noticeable when the engine is cold.

Check PCV valves if vehicle emits blue smoke

If the car is emitting blue smoke from the tail pipe, from burned oil, be sure both PCV valves are functioning properly prior to replacing the turbocharger.
