    Are you sure you are describing a 1985 Nissan 300ZX? I have never seen any with a Hicas suspension. I believe that the Hicas systems came on the newer generation Z's.

    Before I can help, I need to know what I am dealing with.

You might have a leak on to your engine and its burning off, that is where the smell is coming from, turn on your car and check for leaks.

2000 ford f150 makes a wining sound even after truck is turned off. to stop noise you have to take off one of the battery cables.


if you use your nose, you can smell where the problem is coming from. Just start sniffing, and locate the general winey smelling area. If it is a smaller part wining, you may need to taste the part along with some cheese and crackers to verify the wine. Once you have identified the suspect component, either start swapping parts and smell and taste the wine again or take the vehicle to a mechanic for a proper diagnosis and repair. Either way, you will eventually find the problem.

My Polo Classic 2004 1.6 is misfiring. There is a smell of petrol and the car is not accelerating rapidly.


Check carefully for fuel leak. If it starts well and then gets worse as it warms up, check coolant temp sensor. May be it just smells like fuel because it misses so badly fuel is not being burnt and floods tailpipe. Check spark at plugs with timing light to avoid sparks where fuel may be present. Weak or irratic spark can be coil/module, crank/cam sensor. Remove plugs to see what they look like or which is not firing.

I have a 300zxb1990 tt. And the hicas light turns on


if you want to delete the hicas then just remove the pump and plug the line running into the differential. If you want to keep it then i'd suggest you replace the whole system. Is you check engine light on?
