There is power going to the plug and the spark plug is working but the seem to look new and used, no gas burns, nothing and the car does not run smooth, lot of shaking at the engine. Please help. thx u.

Did you check the gap on the spark plug? even though you buy it new sometimes the gap is off? that could make it run rough. you can also try turning the distributer to adjust the timeing but i would check the gap first? also check the gap in the cap.

If you've checked wire, plug & cap, next is compression?

I have a Datsun/Nissan 280ZX non-turbo (Not a 210)


Have the thermostat tested first. You can do that by observing if the fan turns on when the fan exceeds your normal running temperature. You may want to check the radiator cap it may be worn out that some steam may come out through it causing temperature to increase in the process.

#1 Spark plug is no burning fuel.


Either your timing chain has jumped a cog, or a valve is stuck or burnt. Best way to check the timing is with a timing light. If the mark jumps all over the place, your chain is no good. To check the valve, do a compression test. Good luck. Let me know how you make out.
