This is a common problem related to plugged or very dirty low speed idle jets in the carb, When they get that bad it is best to have the carbs cleaned by a reliable mechanic.

Coaster idling high and high fuel consumption


Water temperature is low cost oil is certainly the easiest way is with a hard shell to block part of the warming effect of the radiator well as for how much you want to try to stop. Idle temperatures will rise up relatively low. What is the pull speed? Not run fast but continues to run uninterrupted some time. Usually two hours can be. Is to allow the engine to reach full swell purpose. Such a shift is to be based on the vehicle speed and the reference engine speed. Not based on the engine speed. Driving is probably the single 30 towards third gear, fourth gear towards forty, fifty five-speed ahead. Many people on the car ahead of change. As long as the engine sounds smooth, no trailer can be.

check for engine vacuum leaks and clean the throttle body and idle speed control air bypass valve, also have the system tested for stored trouble codes, below is how to do that test manually. go to the link.

Gs 700 engine screaming at highway speed


cheapest way to lower the rpm is to replace the front sprocket to a larger size, or if easier for you a smaller rear sprocket. you will loose torque at take offs in first gear. also, do some math before you buy a sprocket, front you will need at least 2 more teeth to notice a difference, where at the back it would be like 8 less. see whats available. for harleys there are all kinds of sizes available, for your year im not sure but look around.

Have to plugs and wires been replaced according to the manual every 30/60K? Check for play in the distributor. Look in the throttle body with a light for oil on the intake floor, this would be a bad lower intake gasket. Make sure to use the factory recommended spark plugs, it only likes Champions.

RPM's running alittle high at 60mph


ram1105: when you shift out of overdrive the transmission actually is in a 1-1 ratio with the input shaft of the transmission. Meaning for every revolution of the input shaft, the driveshaft turns the same number. When you shift to overdrive, the ratio changes allowing the engine speed and input shaft speed to slow down while the number of RPM's increases on the driveshaft shaft. The change is not too significant. Usually about a 500 RPM change is normal. You may have a problem with slippage within the transmission overdrive unit.
It may be advantageous to have the transmission pan dropped and it's contents inspected for debris. Older Nissan Automatics were not known for failures. The 3N71B was bullet proof and the 4N series which was just an overdrive added to it, were very reliable.
My son, best friend and I road race Nissan 300Z's. There are a variety of gear ratios for the R200 differential. The 3:70 is the tallest factory setup on a production Z, which would give you the lowest RPM at a higher speed. Outside of that, the tallest tires you can run on the car will also lower the RPM's.Don't forget there is always a trade-off. When you make a gear and change to taller gears, the car is going to feel more sluggish off the line. It will take longer to attain 0-60 unless you increase HP & Torque. I can help you there if you want to know how to do it.

I had a similar problem, engine would fluxuate engine idle speed. I had to change the "Throttle Position Sensor." You might have that checked out.
