Engine Mechanical problem
1982 Nissan 280Z 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 122000 miles
I have replaced all plugs and wires, ignition coil. The car has fuel, battery is brand new. Heres the problem. The car will start up fine, but after a few mins of driving it will shut off an will not start back up untill it cools down. The engine is not overheating but something is causing it to shut off after it warms up. I did drive it home when I bought it (45 mins interstate) and it did just fine. I then drove it for about 2 hrs the next day, mostly non-stop, stayed the night, drove back the 2 hrs. But after arriving home I had to run back out and 3-4 mins from my house it shut off again, but started right bak up after it cooled down. Ive read many forums and im led to belive it could be a faulty sensor that tells the car to shut off at a certain temp, or it is something to do with the fuel system (filter, pump). PLEASE HELP!
have the same problem?
