My 87 300z is flooding out BAD!

I have a 1987 300zx 2x2 non turbo. I changed vacumm lines and fuel lines and tuned it up with cap & rotor and new plugs. it ran great for three days and then it started flooding out even after it had been warmed up but now it will only start and run for a little while when i take out the fuse for the fuel pump. it dumps a lot of fuel when i try to start it. can you help Mitchel Zirlott

1995 chevy full size van, cranks wont start Replaced fuel pump, rotor, dist. started once but now why does it crank but won't start?


It could be a bad fuel pump relay. Or the relay is not getting the proper signal from the pcm to turn on. If a new relay doesn't fix, have the relay's circuit checked.

You've already eliminated the spark plug & wireset, distributor cap & rotor.
Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are:
air filter
motor oil
motor oil filter
breather filter
fuel filter(s)
fuel strainer
PCV valve
EGR valve
spark plugs
spark plug wires
ECM or distributor cap & rotor
cabin air filter
transmission oil filter
transmission oil
engine coolant
check all vacuum hoses and lines

My 1987 chrysler conquest tsi floods the engine and won't start


your best solution wont work because it is an 88 they can only scan '96 and newer when OBD II came out so know what you are talking about before you post
those cars are known for fuelinjection probs. your best bet is to first get your self a fuel pressure regulator and Gauge to determin how much fuel you are pushung and get it tuned up by some one who knows what they are doing because tuning will make or break a turbo car
