1981 280zx will not start
Eric280zx posted a topic in Open DiscussionsHello guys! I'm new to this forum and recently new to the datsun world I purchased a 1981 280zx datsun that has been sitting outside a barn for about 4-6 years and since it still had the engine I decided to see if I can get it running before I even consider swapping the same l28e or if I get lucky the l28et. The first things I did was: change the oil, replace the fuel filter flush tank and replace gasoline (regular) replaced battery with terminals flush and replace coolant, spark plug wires (all in correct firing order) change ngk spark plugs (gaped .42 and added oil in each cylinder for lubrication) I cranked it with no luck, I heard the oil pump running loudly but decided to use starter fluid. Once started fluid was sprayed and the engine was cranked and the engine started and was running on starter fluid so my next steps were: clean injectors clean fuel rail replace o rings and insulation I cranked it again without starter fluid and it only cranked but didnt start. So I did a compression test and numbers were 140, 145, 145, 140,145, 155 so compression is pretty good being that 180psi is like new. I removed the fuel return line and cranked the engine and gasoline came rushing out, I tested the spark and its a blue with white tint, engine sounds like it wants to start so timing is good (?), exhaust smells like gasoline and has pulses, and it still doesnt want to start. Each time i remove the spark plugs after attempting to start it, i can see a little wetness on the tip and it smells like gas. It started once with starter fluid but now it just doesnt want to even with it. What do you guys think can be the problem? thank you!
Hello all. I'd appreciate it if someone has the Japan domestic market wiring diagram for the fuel injection system on this Non turbo 280z. The problem i have is that i dont see an air temp sensor in the intake (or anyplace) of the air flow meter. also, i see a wire for an O2 sensor (I think) but the car has no O2 sensor installed. Does someone know for sure if this Specific car should or should not have both the air temp sensor and O2 sensor installed? My friend just purchased this car, and i'm his pet mechanic . i'm just trying to figure out if it should or should not have this bits. it currently runs great after a full fluid changes/service/tune and now i'm just trying to get it back to stock (currently has extractors) and check/adjust everything. for example the idle switch was not closing at idle and the Aux air valve was not closing also causing a high idle even when warm, but i sorted those two problems out. many thanks to anyone that may have the JDM Factory service manual perhaps with a wiring diagram for this 1979 Non turbo 280z. Thanks in advance. kind regards Gavin.
