UNfortunately, due to the extremely tight and cramped conditions surrounding the motor......you will need to remove the engine to perform any major engine work.

1985 Nissan 300ZX I want to disable the fuel pump to relieve the pressure before replacing the fuel filter. Is it a relay or a fuse?


No need to remove any relay. Proceed as follows:
- Park the car in shaded and well ventilated area.
- Remove the negative battery terminal.
- Loosen the fuel cap, fuel filter banjo bolt, push on or pipe clip.
- Wrap a piece of cloth around the connecting end of the pipe and remove the pipe.
CAUTION:
Let the engine cool down about half an hour before you proceed.
Keep your eyes away from the gasoline splash.
Keep any flame away.
Dry up the area immediately.
NOTE:
It is always better to get the job done by a qualified personnel.

I am having a problem with my oil pressure... my guage which is not a dummy light, keeps dropping to like 1 kg per sq. inch when normally at 120kps i'm doing 3000rpm and the oil guage reads at around 3.7...


Don't get too concerned yet. Take it to the shop and let them scew in a well know mechanic's gage to make sure that the sensor isn't giving you a bad signal. That would be the first place to check.

Engine timing problems


Doubtful, since you shouldn't have to remove the timing belt to change the pump. You have the VG30E engine, from which the VG30DETT in my 1990 300ZX was derived, and that one also didn't need the timing belt removed to change the water pump. However, you may have had to remove the cam angle sensor (on my engine, it's a round sensor on the driver's side exhaust cam). That sensor rotates twice for every turn of the crank, so if it got spun accidentally, it could be 360 degrees out of phase. It's keyed to only fit in one position on the end of the cam, but it could've been rotated one full revolution accidentally. If your engine has one, remove it carefully and slowly, then reach into the back of it, turn the pin one full turn, and reinstall it. Try that out and see if the car then starts and runs.
