76 280Z shuting off while driving

Recommended Posts

On the way home 7 miles total, my Z shut off going around 40mph two times> After coasting over to the side of the road it would immediatly start right up like there was no problem. Needless to say I can't get it to do this in my garage. Any ideas.... its almost like some gremlin turns the key off. Thanks for any replys.

The fuel pump would be a good place to start. Right before they fail it is not uncommon to get this type of sporadic operation. Do you have a pressure gauge that you can run some tests?

Had a Maxima that did the same thing. Matchbook module on the distributor would heat up and shut down and by the time I'd coast into somewhere to check things out it have cooled off enough to work again. Much prefer the remote module set-up......

The OP's car is fuel injected. Yours, according to your profile, isn't. I'm sure you're not having the 'same' problem in that your car is shutting off, but the reason would not be the same. Edited by sblake01
