Hi I have a 89 300zx TT and i just done a engine swap recently because the old engine blew up and now most the time it wont go and when i do finally get it to fire up it backfires really loud and sounds like its not running on all cylinders, even when i do get it to start sometimes it idles and other times it will just die again. i checked which exhaust is backfiring and its coming from the left hand exhaust and the right hand one doesn't seem to have anything coming out of it at all. I installed a new timing belt and spark plugs when i put the engine in. i checked the spark of all the coils and took the crank angle sensor off to see if the injectors are pulsing, checked the wiring harness to the e.c.u. i can't think of anything apart from maybe i got the timing slightly off?? anyone got any ideas?? maybe its electrical??

i checked the timing belt and refitted it, also done the self diagnostics test and the e.c.u says that everything there is fine (5 long flashes and 5 short flashes). the car still wont start!!!! im puzzled as to what it could be. anyone???

yip checked it , it looks all good for pressure. It sounds like it almost wants to start and then it just goes back to winding over again. smoke comes out of both the exhausts for the first few cranks then nothing. could it be the power transistor unit? would the e.c.u self diagnostic pick up on that? or does that only tell you the wiring is alright?

ok i finally got it going everytime now, for some reason it kept on fouling the spark plugs i put a fresh set in and it started straight away. But now the computer must be in fail-safe mode because i can't rev the engine above 2400rpm. is that a problem with the MAS?

theres no engine light coming on, it just won't rev over 2400rpm. i took the MAF out and cleaned it with electrical parts cleaner but its still exactly the same. do you think that the MAF might be wrecked?
