What would cause the engine of a 1990 Nissan 300ZX to shake after you start it then eventually die?

Clean the mass air inflow sensor. You may also have some engine sensors that are borderline working and won't cause a check engine code but are feeding the engine control computer the skewed readings. If you have a check engine light on- go repair that problem. LOL

Most likely severe overheating, or no engine oil is left in the oil pan. It could also be that your starter does not work, which is an easy repair.

What would make a 1993 geo prisim just die and not start cranks but wont start?

If an engine has: * compression * fuel * ignition spark delivered in the right quantities and at the right time while the engine is being "cranked" by the starter motor, it will start. Your problem now is to find out which isn't working right. I always suggest starting fluid to help isolate the problem

Can an engine be swapped from a 1990 300zx twin turbo into a 1986 300zx non turbo?

although possible, it is not recommended. The actual cast engine block is the same however, the intake manifold and exhaust manifolds are to wide to fit into the z31 engine bay. So it is possible but would take a good amount of custom fabrication. I'd recommend an sr20 or rb series motor swap. considerably less modification

What is the horsepower rating of a Datsun 280z with a 3200 engine?

The Datsun 280z never had a 3200 engine. I don't think Nissan ever has had a 3200 engine. Maybe in one of the newer maxima's or something. The closet thing would be a 3000 engine from a 300zx but it did not come stock that way. Someone would have motor swap it. It came with a 2800 motor

Can you replace a 1993 300zx non-turbo engine with a 2006 350z engine?
