Question about 1987 Nissan 300ZX
It's your crank angle sensor which is in the distributor. You must replace the distributor. The other things people mentioned are possible but not likely. When the engine suddenly dies and then restarts (sometimes restarting itself after a few seconds) it is the crank angle sensor failing. A common symptom is that the tach stops working momentarily but you aren't even sure the engine quit because it happens so fast and suddenly the tach works again.

It's possible the fuel filter is clogged up. If it has been a while since you changed the fuel filter, it may need to be changed. It is either located in the tank or between the tank and carbeurator. You may also have gotten bad gas or water in the gas. Check this also.
