The Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) may need cleaning or replacement.
This valve lets air bypass the throttle plate so that the engine can idle. The more air, the faster the idle. If this valve is sticky, the computer may have a hard time regulating the idle properly and may surge.

SOURCE: 1983 280z fuel injected starts
You will need to adjust the timing by rotating the distributor and using a timing light gun. The correct timing for the 1983 Datsun/Nissan is set at 8 degrees for both the manual and automatic transmissions (non turbo)
The correct spark plug gap is: 044 (In thousandths of an inch)
Firing order is: 1-5-3-6-2-4 ------------- front | | of | 1 2 3 4 5 6 | the distributor rotates counter clockwise
Also make sure your fuel filter is clean and your plug wires are good
If you have the turbo model, the correct timing is set at 24 degrees for both manual and automatic transmissions)
Before top dead center
*Set at warm idle speed (650 RPM)
*Distributor vacuum hose disconnected & plugged
*Transmission in drive (parking brake engaged)
