    Default Help!!!

    I need help on figureing out what's wrong with my car. I have a 75 280z all stock.
    The car started to act up yesterday after work. The car started to do a bit like the movies when the car starts to runs out of gas. The car is fine at idles but when I push on the gas it chokes and wants to just die out.
    Can anyone help
    Thanks!!!!!

    Sounds like a fuel pump, maybe getting weak. You'll need a fuel pressure guage to check it. Unless someone knows a quick and dirty way.....

    Default 1st.

    1st I would put in A new fuel filter. if that didnt help see if there is any psi from the pump. Z's are known for junk in the gas tanks. rust and so on. Thats what it sounds like being it runs till you give it gas. Junk from the tank.
    I reside in Oklahoma and live at the wheel of my 240Z

    gimmie the Z or he's toast

    Thanks, to all who gave me advice on the car. I dropped the tank an cleaned it. The tank was full of rust when i looked at the bottom of the bucket it looked like mud. Since the tank was down I put new fuel hoses. I also checked the Air Flow Meter and it was shorting out. Know it starts and doesn't die out. Thanks for all the help.
