Question about 1990 Nissan 300ZX
I have a 1990 300zx n/a. It is only running on 4 cylinders. I am about to change the injectors, but could this be the reason. Maybe distributor, coils? Also it develops a tick now (when it never did until recently) SO i'm not driving it. Also it sat this winter and when I started it this last week it started smoking and there seems to be an oil leak near the back of the motor. I don't know if it's down low by the rear main, or if there is some where else it could leak from? Then last but for sure not least I am not getting any heat, and the vents don't change when I try to switch from defrost. Please help me I;m WAY TOO POOR to bring it to the dealer. i have a 300zx N/A and my front 2 cylinders dont run . i changed one of the coil packs because it was fried but i dont think it made a diffrence. also i go the other cylinder to run before by pushing on the wires on the ignition connector but i havent been able to get that cylinder running. and i have a water leak but i dont know if its the block or the water pump. help please
Did the car get overheated or run low on oil? Sounds like you have a water leak that caused the engine to run hot which in turn blew the head gasket and quite possibly warped the aluminum head that come with the nissan models. I've had experience with this before and unless you are mechanically inclined, you need to see a mechanic about finding and fixing the water leak and changing the head gasket. Also, If you pull the head, you need to have a machine shop check for warping. They may be able to shave it and make it straight again. You've got real problems though and if you try to tackle this yourself, keep in touch with me so I can help you.
