I HAVE A 77 280 Z THAT I AM SELLING TODAY. IT DIDNT PASS SMOG BECAUSE THE F.I. IS RUNNING TOO RICH. CAN SOMEONE TELL ME HOW TO FIX THIS PROBLEM SO I CAN HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY MY RENT.

THE CAR HAS 46,880 ORIGINAL MILES, WAS SITTING FOR OVER 30 YEARS. ,MY HUSBAND CAME ON THIS SITE AND DIED ON APRIL 13TH THIS YEAR. HE CHECKED OUT THE WHOLE CAR. ALL OF THE PARTS IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT IS STILL FACTORY. MY HUSBANDS NAME HERE WAS: MDC75.

PLEASE CAN SOMEONE GET BACK TO ME IN A RUSH? THANX

Has the car been driven much lately? How close were the car's test numbers to the allowed limits? If they were close, sometimes all these cars need is some fairly spirited freeway driving before the smog check. You might even try a good in-tank fuel system cleaner. Run the car with the cleaner in the tank until the fuel level is fairly low and then fill it up (no cleaner this time) and then try the smog check again. Like I said, if the numbers were fairly close, either of those should work.

In addition to what Stephen said, make sure that the car is up to normal operating temperatures and has been for a while before running the test. I seem to recall that some vehicles will fail if the test if the cat hasn't gotten to its optimal temperature. When I lived in Cali (years ago) I recall the smog tech asking me if I had done this, so there must be something to it.

There are so many things to consider. Did you pass the low or high rpm's? Fail both? Most pass the high and fail the low. If it is close then running a higher rpm at idle could help. other things to do is do a basic tuneup: plugs, oil, filter and the fuel cleaner like Stephen said. Lucky for you its not computerized or you'd be worried about a closed loop.

Would that be MC75Z? Michael? I'm sorry to hear of his passing. I recall exchanging pm's with him possibly about a year or so ago about fuel injectors and/or fuel injector connectors. I recall that somehow in those pm's that we realized that were were roughly the same age.

Hey Everyone. Yes that was Michael. Liver cancer. Thank you and I miss him too. SHE PASSED SMOG LEGALLY! The guy ran her at 24 m.p.h. instead of at 25 and she passed. Finally! Well I ended up keeping the car. Thanks All,

Stacey

Sorry to hear about you loss, hope all is well with you. Did I understand that you are now going to keep the car? That sounds like some good news if I understood it correct. If you are keeping the car and would like some help time to time, I would recommend to you to join the Z club of San Diego. There are many great guys and girls in the club that would help out a fellow club member. PM me is you are interested, I will hook you up with the meeting place and the website. Sounds like you have a Z worth keeping for many reasons.

Hello All. Thanx so very much for the kind words. Right now i have to sell the car due to the fact I need rent. A.S.A.P. Life insurance companies suck. Over 6 months and they are lagging badly. $2,500.00 bottom price is a steal. I have to get on my other computer to send everyone photos. I still have my '75 280 Z. With her I had to take the whole front of the engine apart to get to the timing chain guide. Put on a new one and I am right now up to the disrtributor putting her back together. Yes all by myself. And I have a great bottle of wine to celebrate when I start her. That is going to be sweet.

Got to go but I hope to hear someone wants a great car for little pennies.
