Turned out to be a bad earth in the engine compartment. I had degreased the engine and knocked out some of the crud around the earthing point. The earthing wire was subsequently loose. Got an electrical fault? CHECK ALL THE EARTH CONNECTIONS FIRST!!! I had checked all the switches, relays and connectors I could get at before checking the earth connections...

What is the torque power for a 1990 Nissan Stanza?

143 lb ft of torque for the 1990 model. 148 lb ft of torque for the 1991-1992. Of the Stanza models, the 1992 is widely considered the closest to a fwd version of the 240sx benefiting in large part by the later refinements to engine/transmission dynamics. As such, these vehicles were highly successful in other counties, where driving conditions warranted that type of power/torque to be directed to the front wheels. Of the 240sx/Silvia and the Stanza/Pintara, the Stanza/Pintara was the more popular and sold in higher numbers when compared on a world platform.
