  1. Thank you for the photos! I placed an order for a new switch so I can fix that transmission leak. Right now I'm trying to find the source of an oil leak. It only leaks out a few drops each day but I want go ahead and fix it. I tightened all the oil pan bolts because I noticed that they were loose. Hopefully this fixes the issue.
  2. Thank you for this Zed Head! Would replacing the entire sensor fix the leaking issue or are there additional o-rings I need to replace as well?
  3. I found a few drops of oil coming from my transmission. I looked under and it’s coming from what seems to be a sensor. What would be the best way to fix this?
  4. Thank you for this. The Z is running pretty well. I’ll start working on the List you gave me.
  5. Thanks for al the replies. I was able to get new brake pads for the Z. i just pulled all 6 spark plugs. There’s motor oil around the threads of all 6 spark plugs. It seems like there’s also a bit of oil on maybe 2 of the spark plug tips as well. The Z has been running extremely rich and has had a misfire issue due to one of the injectors not working. I wonder if that could be the reason.
  6. The current brake pads are slight touching the rotors. Is this normal?
  7. I was able to replace them! i noticed the caliper I have is different. Do you know which calipers these are? I need to get brake pads I replaced the rotors with the non vented original rotors for a 280z and the brake pads are slightly touching the rotors.
  8. I just completed most of the engine tune up work today 🙂 Now it's time to move onto the suspension. The stock suspension is very bouncy on our 1977 280z. My fiance and I are mainly going to be using the Z for driving around on the weekends and also for hitting the canyons every now and then. I want to lower the car to 1-1.5 inches. I don't plan on putting fender flares and maybe just using 215 tires on 16 inch wheels. What do you guys think would be the best option for suspension? I was looking at Megan Coilovers for $800, CX Racing for $882 or just eibach springs and KYB struts. How do you guys like your setups?

  10. I tested the wire correction for all 6 injectors and they are working. One of the injectors isn't firing. I stripped the 2 out of 4 wheel studs on the front driver's side 😕 To change out the wheel studs, do I need to remove the calipers as well? Thank you.
  11. Hi guys, I did some work on the Z today. I replaced the fuel filter, transmission fluid. I need to replace the fuel injector because I have one that is not firing. Should I replace all 6 or just the one not working? Is it okay to buy a re-manufactured injector? Do you guys advise buying this set: https://www.ebay.com/p/Set-of-Six-Factory-Reman-Nissan-OEM-Injectors-1975-83-280z-ZX-2-8l-Non-Turbo/24013354735?iid=201509531117&chn=ps
  12. Thank you guys. I ended up fixing this issue by replacing the wheel cylinder. next up is changing out the differential fluid. I bought Mobil 1 75w-90. I didn’t find much info about this on the internet for our diffs, but should this work fine or should I return it and go with Redline?
  13. Thanks for the replies. Can I just buy a hard brake line and the flare nut at a local auto store? What diameter, flare and length would I be looking for? What type of flare nut would I be looking for? thank you!
  14. I bought a set of wrenches and was able to loosen it and retightened it. It still is leaking. i noticed that the line wiggles within the flare but. The leaking point is the gap in between the flare nut and where the line goes inside. which part would I have to replace to fix the issue?
