First, you need to check to see if the fuel pump is running. To do that, remove the gas cap, and put your ear near the hole for the cap. Have someone else turn the key to the on position (not all the way to start, just 2 clicks forward) and off, waiting in the on position a couple of seconds each time. You should hear a buzz in the fuel tank. This is the fuel pump coming on. (It will only stay on a couple of seconds) Make sure the area you are in is quiet so you can hear it. If you don't hear it, check your fuses. If you do, move on to step 2. Step 2: CAREFULLY remove one of the spark plug wires from the spark plug. To do this TWIST AND PULLat the same time. (this will help keep you from ruining your wire by pulling the end off the wire.) Once the wire is off, insert a screwdriver into the end of the wire and set the wire and screwdriver down on the vehicle so that they are not making contact with any metal, but the exposed metal of the screwdriver shaft is around 1/8 inch away from something metal for it to ground to. MAKE SURE NOT TO TOUCH THE WIRE OR SCREWDRIVER WHILE TESTING IT!! (50,000 volts = ouch!!) Again have someone else crank the engine while you look at the area of the screwdriver near the metal ground source. You should see sparks arcing from the screwdriver to the metal ground. If you don't, reposition the screwdriver and try again. If you still have no spark, the first thing I would do is replace the igniiton module. It is fairly cheap and readily available at your local parts house. Beyond that, you need to take it in to your shop for repair. I hope this helps you.
Although maybe possible, most likely not probable. Symptoms of a bad tps include rough idling, fuel-rich signs such as fouled spark plugs, black smoke ROM the exhaust, etc. I have never seen a case where the symptoms were ignored to the point where the vehicle would not start.
2. temperature of engine not coming up in winter
3. poor engine performance
4. low gas milage
the AIV valve is dirty. This is a very common problem, your best bet is to remove the entire AIV box (located behind the airbox on the drivers side) via the 3 screws holding it in place, then remove and plug the 2 hoses that were leading to it. This is completely safe, and all it is doing is keeping exhaust fumes from entering your intake manifold. If this doesnt work, then try installing a new fuel filter, preferably one for a 1990 300ZX, it is a direct fit and will give you a better throttle response
You will need to reprogram the ECU when you put bigger fuel injectors into your Nissan. The manufacturer recommends that you do not use any fuel injectors other than the originals.

First of all take out the negative cable of the battery. Secondly, there are two terminals on the solenoid, which is the round piece on top of the starter. Take out the connection on the outer nut sticking out. There is another nut besides it towards the inside which you need not touch. Thirdly, take out the two mounting bolts, first the one under then the one on top. The starter will just drop once you take out the second bolt.

Outlets burn out because the appliances plugged in are drawing too much current, thus overheating the contacts and eventually burn out. This can happen to any electrical connection when the amps or voltage required exceeds the capacity of the connector. In homes the fuses/circuit breakers will most likely blow/trip first.
Yes you should just replace the outlet, they should not cost much at your local hardware store, unless the outlet was a specific type. This can save you headaches in the long run with power stability etc etc.
The most likely case would be that air somehow got into the line. try bleeding the clutch fluid, while making sure that the level in the reservoir does not get low.
Facing the car, hood open, look to the upper right side of the opening for the dual fans (they are in front of the radiator). A silver, metal hose, with a female screw in will be facing you. That is the charging hose input.
1. Detach the black, ground cable from the battery using a back up wrench to hold the bolt head and a wrench to turn the retaining nut loose.
2. Jack up the front of your Nissan 240SX using a floor jack, and safely support it on two jack stands
3. Unbolt the starter support bracket using the ratchet and socket.
4. Disconnect the wire and battery cable from the starter assembly using the ratchet and socket.
5. Support the starter motor with the floor jack, if necessary, and remove the starter mounting bolts using the ratchet and socket.
6. Lower the starter and remove it from the vehicle.
7. Position the starter on the engine and support it with the floor jack, if necessary.
8. Start the mounting bolts by hand. Then tighten the bolts using the ratchet and socket.
9. Remove the floor jack from under the starter and connect the wire and battery cable to the motor using the ratchet and socket.
10. Install the starter support bracket using the ratchet and socket.
11. Remove the floor jack and lower the vehicle.
12. Attach the black, ground cable to the battery using the backup wrench to hold to bolt head and the wrench to tighten the retaining nut.
People claim that it is useless to do. I guess the poor flow of the SR head wouldn't be practical to put on a higher displacement 2.4
if the car was involved in a front end collision the bumper guard could have been pushed back enough to block them from going down. My headlights were in such a way they would go up but not down - had to remove the bumper guard and then straighten out the frame a little for em to work
first, remove the spark plug from #1, bring piston to TDC(you can see the piston in the hole or use timing marks on dampener pulley) then remove dist. cap, where the metal piece faces is #1 then goes counterclockwise 3 4 2. then you can turn the distributor itself to tweak timing once the car is running
