Congrats on your Z! I would take your Z32 to a trusted Z mechanic and have all the required maintenance done. Parts do wear out on our Z's and it's better safe then sorry.

Where do you live? I might be able to suggest a trusting Z mechanic.

If you have a copy of the owner's manual, you'll find an suggested schedule for getting things done. If not, you may be able to find one online. Timing belt should have been done around 90,000. Service varies, dealers charge an arm and a leg. Find a reputable independent. I live in Van Nuys and have always taken my car to Precision Z in Canoga Park. The ignition timing and all other engine functions are computer controlled and shouldn't need tuning although there are things that can be done to the ECU to alter these functions. Unfortunately, the 300 ZX is not a "Shade-Tree Mechanic's," type car. You need special tools so it's best to let the experts do these things. Stay safe, I'm a retired Army Reserve 05, I'll try to answer your questions. Email me at [email protected]
