Sounds like a voltage issue.
I would have the altenator tested and also at the same time have the battery tested.

1984 nissan 300zx turbo a.e. wont run after i ran out of gas without pumping pedal then runs rough bliwing smoke for a minute then stalls.

Check the fuel filters and change them IF the fuel pump ran dry it might have worn itself out. You need to have the fuel pressure checked.

1985 nissan 300zx has start signal failure how do you repair the problem

Start signal comes from the clutch engagement switch. When you press the clutch the pedal arm hits a switch and signals the motor to be able to start. Look and see if you have a little rubber piece pushed through a hole on the clutch pedal arm

Sounds like the warm start choke. It positions the carb butterflies when the car is warm and adjusts the fuel mixture.

1985 Nissan 300zx will crank, run, and diesel until it dies

YOUR problem is you have water in the engine as that is the only thing you can get apart from brake fluid that can cause white smoke OR steam out the exhaust or white steam out of the breather so check the dip stick it should have water beeds on with the oil or if you take off the filler cap it will have white oil on it,, so then drain sump and fit new filter and refill with 20W 50 and away you go..Have a goodday Ron
