  1. Cylinder 4 low compression paired with misfire

    Maintenance & Repairs
    As it turns out, the dealership lied to me. The technician said he took out all three spark plugs on bank 2 and said that cylinder 4 was the bad one. Well I took out 2 and 6 to check them and they were both as bad as cylinder 4. So I replaced all three and the car runs fine now. They must have...
  2. Cylinder 4 low compression paired with misfire

    Maintenance & Repairs
    Alright well I was looking around the site and I saw a couple threads of people who also had low compression but they were saying their bad cylinder was at like 30 psi and the rest were about 115-120 and we're still firing. Since mine is still at 140 it should be firing still so maybe the low...

    I'll check it today. It's sitting at the dealership parking lot. Doesn't the white smoke indicate either oil or coolant is burning?
  4. Cylinder 4 low compression paired with misfire

    Maintenance & Repairs
    I've got a 2003 touring with 101k miles on it. It's got a few mods such as a plenum spacer and exhaust manifold. A few days ago out of nowhere the car started to misfire pretty badly when I started it up. I had it towed to the dealership because I didn't know what kind of stress it would cause...
  5. Oil pressure constantly dropping to 0?

    Maintenance & Repairs
    That's what I'll try first. And idk it doesn't stick for me. I usually watch it while I'm driving to I can pinpoint when it drops and it doesn't stick anywhere. It's always pretty responsive. It just keeps dropping to near zero/ completely zero whenever I brake or turn.
  6. Oil pressure constantly dropping to 0?

    Maintenance & Repairs
    More and more often while I'm driving, my oil pressure gauge will randomly drop to zero and throw me an oil warning light. It usually happens while I'm braking or if I'm turning. Is it maybe a faulty pressure sensor? I can't find any leaks whenever I look. It's a 2003 touring with 96k miles. The...
  7. Engine shutting down while decelerating

    Maintenance & Repairs
    I'll try upping the fuel grade first then and I'll see where it is in a week or so. I'm in Panama City FL and the tuning shops near me will only work on American made. I actually don't know about the cats. I'm somewhat new to cars (I'm an aircraft mechanic) but I'll check it out. Anyway, I...
  8. Engine shutting down while decelerating

    Maintenance & Repairs
    It had all of the upgrades when I bought it, I've only owned it for about a month. I've been looking for a place to take it to tune but no one in my area does Nissan. Normally I used 87 and with that I was blowing smoke once in a while and had the smell. I just put it up to 89 to see if that did...
  9. Engine shutting down while decelerating

    Maintenance & Repairs
    Coincidentally, my oil pressure sensor has been throwing me lights as well. Normally it's during a sharp turn if I have the clutch pushed in and the engine is idling so my theory is that it's a lack of load on the engine causing low oil pressure. I'm not sure if it's related to the other...
  10. Engine shutting down while decelerating

    Maintenance & Repairs
    Sorry about that. It's a 2003 touring with a kinetix intake and borla exhaust. It's also got a short shifter and hochkis suspension. It's been running pretty rich since I bought it so a gas smell is normal. The only difference between this and my normal diving was a couple of days ago I decided...
  11. Engine shutting down while decelerating

    Maintenance & Repairs
    I was out driving last night but I wasn't expecting was for my engine to die somewhere between 75 and 90 mph while I was trying to slow down. As I was slowing down every light on the left side of my dash illuminated and the gas pedal became unresponsive. The lights that came on were "brake"...
  12. Spoiler mounting hole matching?

    Interior & Exterior
    It's a factory lip with most of the clear coat peeled off.
  13. Spoiler mounting hole matching?

    Interior & Exterior
    I recently bought a 2003 touring with the factory style lip. I want to replace this remin style with the double wing spoiler as shown: http://www.carid.com/2003-nissan-350z-spoiler/jks-rear-spoiler-1002312.html Since they're both considered factory styles will they have the same mounting...
