Question about 1987 Nissan 300ZX
Just bought the car 2 months ago and have driven it maybe 300+ miles on weekends checking it out.This Friday I had to jumpstart the car and drove it around some.Sat. I put new battery cables on it and drove around some more.Returning home, it cut off several hundred feet from home and I coasted into the driveway. It turns over but wil not start. Any Ideas. The engine is V6-3000 with Automatic shifting. It was driving fine before.
If you go to a garage they will connect your car's computer to a code reader and get in return error codes that will tell you where to find the fault.
A defective alarm system can turn off the engine suddenly , in this case you will need to use the car key to unlock it.
Bad ECM module controlling electronic injection is a more common cause for car suddenly failing.
Check also that fuel pump is working and not making wird noise.
Check that air intake is clean and air filter is not too dirty.
Check that you have spark on all cylinder, also electronic distribution problems can cause the same.
You will getting more and definitive info by connecting car to a code reader.
