    How to get/import a Nismo 350z?
    Hello, fellow z33 lovers.
    I'm fourteen and I would like to get a Nismo 350z when I turn 18/ get my full licence. Yea I know thats sometime away but all i do is look up listings for these vehicles. Say what you want, "Some spoiled kid tryna getting his parents to buy him a car cos he saw tokyo drift" or some shit like that but its the total opposite. I'm already saving but I know if any of you know how to get a Nismo edition this car. Its not on that SVES list and I can't find any listings on sites like Gumtree or Carsales. I can't even find a importer that sells these:,( Am I going to have to go to Japan and do a shit ton of paperwork + pay shipping to get one? If anyone knows how to get one, please tell me. It would greatly appreciated, cheers.

    It's more likely the squeak is coming from the idler/tensioner bearing which needs to be replaced

    You spend $6k with a mechanic who has not fixed he problem and not read the ECU codes ???  He's clearly hopeless...
    You're now worried about a $300 ECU diagnosis (which should have been done much earlier) ???
    You post asking for ideas without telling us what remedial attempts have already been done to date ???
    Hmmm...
    White smoke is normally coolant being burnt (things like blown head gasket or even cracked head).
    If you can smell oil it's either being burnt and going out the exhaust or the engine is wet with oil evaporating due to heat.
    Burning oil will kill the cat's and they are likely to clog causing a loos of power at the very least
    I doubt the solution will be found on the internet - best to take it to a decent service centre

    I have a 2010 stock 370z and it too stared running really rough last year . After thinking the worst. Realized the battery was on its way out and the engine was not getting a nice clean spark. Changed battery and back to being brilliant. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So after further research I ended up purchasing a set of Tein Flex Z coilovers and will be keeping the stock sways for the meantime. 
    My first choice was the MCA blues but got a good deal on the Tein’s so pretty stoked. 
    They should arrive end of next week.

    sometimes you got to bite the bullet and take it to nissan

    yeah I'm in Brisbane thanks for the offer on the tools. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Thanks again. I will have my mechanic have another look at the code or new codes on Monday and ill suggest those possible issues. Crankshaft position sensor is the code I got a few weeks ago mentioned above. I have spent around 6k with this mechanic on these issues ill try get and get them to spend more time on it for free Monday. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Nope. No video for me. Until late 2011, 370z's still suffered from timing chain oil gallery gasket failure . This manifests itself by showing low oil pressure when tested and a miss fire as the vvt doesn't work correctly due to the low oil pressure.however it doesn't usually cause oil loss as the oil runs back into the sump. My first port of call would be read the codes with a cheap code reader (I'm in victoria and would lend you mine) and next would be a compression test (I have a compression tester I'd lend out too) to rule out any major mechanical issues. Like I said it could be a $20 plastic pcv valve

    You don't say how many km's your doing in 6 weeks so can't tell if the oil consumption is high. If you think it is high then maybe look at your pcv valve, a faulty pcv can cause excessive oil consumption . It can also cause oil to get into the combustion chamber causing misfires and smoking. You can read codes with cheap devices you can buy yourself

    just a few recent attempted fixes and the error code I am getting flashing after driving like this, code is the only one that logged at tuning shop. nissan said $300 to diagnose want to avoid that if possible.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180301/85215d39a39ad0b4494cf8bcf81fbe60.jpg] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Thanks a lot I will upload video tomorrow. going through 1 litre of oil per 6 weeks or so, no coolant issues or overheating oil temp at 96°Celsius when driving. burning oil smell b4 and during issues. white smoke at cold start and taking off quickly. misfiring in neutral and in gear, has had engine sludge mentioned by mechanic but have had flushed twice since. Issue has come and gone with new ecu, new fuel pump spark plugs, battery, o2 sensor coil pack all 6. I will up load video soon though. hope someone will have seen this issue b4 hard to find a mechanic with any experience with 370z issues. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Need more info really. Maybe upload a video so we can hear it. How is the idle? Does it get worse when it’s warmed up. Is it making any knocking noises?. Burning much oil /coolant. Is the engine light on?

    replaced all of the above already. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  22. Bry added a post in a topic 370z is dropping cyliders intermittently   

    Could be a faulty coil pack/spark plug. Pull the plugs put and see if you can find an oily one

    thanks anyways was just wondering if u had heard of it before. Diagnostic tool not been much help at the 3 mechanics i have taken it too. no one knows how to fix atm unfortunately. engine replacement maybe? Or rebuild. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  24. MartinZ added a post in a topic 370z is dropping cyliders intermittently   

    These things generally can't be diagnosed over the internet - at a minimum you need to connect to the ECU to check for errors - then full diagnosis procedure
  25. Farks added a post in a topic 370z is dropping cyliders intermittently   

    looks like it's something else. Mafs have been cleaned and oil topped up engine is popping and misfiring still non stop. any ideas ☹ Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
