Thanks for the support guys! I have a crazy work schedule at Autozone, hardly anytime to spend with my cars or this wonderful forum. I've ran into a few problems with my B310 recently. I notice the car was a bit hesitant, loss power and idling was odd, so I ended up taking a look under the hood. I figured it was something to do with either a vacuum hose or electrical. Found out it was the wire that connects the coil to the distributor cap, so I ended up buying a set of ngk wires from Advance Auto (umm yeah Autozone does not sell any ngk wires, nor do they stock many of ngk spark plugs
). One problem was solved. Another thing I noticed was coolant splattered under my hood after a long trip to the beach. The color of the coolant looks almost like an orangey rusty shade, although I flushed and changed it last year with prestone 50/50 universal coolant (yellowish green). It seems to be that my head gasket is blown from what I've been witnessing from people around me with similar situations, and since my car blows smoke from time to time. I haven't fixed this issue yet, and am debating whether or not I should, since I want to go with an engine swap in the future.
On a happier note, I am proud to say my car took me down to Point Pleasant beach from Newark and back with nothing but a coolant spill, as it was the longest drive I ever took her in (about an hour and change one way). Though I must admit, one of the greatest feelings ever was that of driving a Japanese Nostalgic Car down the parkway with people from all angles gazing at it with their jaws dropped, and proving to your girlfriend that a classic vehicle can go the distances. Butterflies were indeed floating around in my stomach.
Though my journey does not end there. I do have plans in getting my bumpers on for this weekend, being that I finally have off one full weekend. I am also planning on getting the entire strut assembly from a 280zx, brakes and all, in order to weld on some ground control coilovers, but I'm waiting to sell some things off of craigslist first in order to fund this.
I'll keep you guys posted with any updates.
