    not unless i heard it.... any obvious sucking sound would be a vacuum leak... does the motor seem like it's missing ... and is the check engine light on.... if so stop at an autozone and have them read the codes for you.

If the car idle on high rpm check if when you will step on the gas pedal over 2500 3000 rpm the car will start shaking and the will die if thats happening then check your mass air flo sensor ,or if there is no air leak that avoid the mass air flo sensor

My nissan altima 1999 did not pass the smog test due to "high emission", it also does not have the check engine light on or give any obd codes. What could be the problem?


Robert, High emissions usually mean the EGR valve and several hoses and other smog components are clogged up. There is no easy fix, you have to get the shop to check through the smog system on your car if you cannot do it yourself. Type of driving, short runs, high miles, burning oil etc all contribute to the engine giving a dirty reading. It may not be enough to light the lamp but it'll be dirty enough. Of cause, it may be the lamp is bust as well? Does it test light when you start up?

1986 NISSAN 300ZX FAILED EMISSIONS HIGH CO


I would replace CATalitic converter, this car is old, plus a tuneup is 100% necessary , spark plugs wires, ditributor cap & rotor, plus both the air & fuel filters need replaced. change oil & filter. then you will pass emissions test. and your car will run like its suppose too. if you don't do all this , then buy a new car !

I'm barely failing smog due to high hydrocarbons.


Hi Larry, I your position I believe I would take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and then check the read outs. There could be a problem with any one of a number of sensors but I believe you'll end up with all odds pointing at the cat. Regards John

WONT SMOG


wrong arrangement of piston rings affects intire performance of an engine. and must see that.
have you calibrate your injection pump? and change your injectors?
have a shop with scan-tool diagnose the problem.

Nissan 300zx 5th cylinder died


do you have coil over plug or one coil? if you have spark plug wires, swap one with the cylinder in question. swap an injector.

My 91 300zx passed the smog inspection but failed the visual because the timing was off now what can i do ?


the timing can be adjusted via the crank angle sensor... under the hood on the upper right side of the engine there is a metal piece with a mitsubishi symbol on it. it has 3 screws visible and a plug. undo the screws and depending on where it is now twist it so that it is slightly to the left of center about 1.5millimeters off center. the crank angle sensor is not a way to majorly adjust the timing just minor adjustments. i assume the car is running now so its probably severely advanced you can concievably fiddle with it to get the smoothest idle out of the car. between 650 and 800 is good
