He Who Dares Rodney...V Cheap 370z With Cut Out Issue??....

As above guys, as Im back in the 370 Market :) 

Ive stumbled across this white stunner https://www.wraithauto.co.uk/inventory/nissan-370z-gt-2009

Obvious "engine issues" screams danger!

So I pick up the phone and call the dealer, very pleasant chap gave me a lot of info on the car and it seems to be the engine is cut out/grumbling at low speeds (under 20/25mph) at high speeds/high revs car drives fine. His sent me a few videos of the car/engine at start up and idle and it starts fine no noises jumping out/knocking etc.

So I start thinking could this just be a simple MAF sensor issue?

He had a classic car engine rebuilder look at it who said it could be the shaft sensor but that could open up a can of worms......

Googling this issue it seems a standard issue with the 350z/370z - I remember this issue with my 350 and cleaning the throttle body etc to improve idling and performance. 

So the $64000 question........whats everyones thoughts :) :) :)

Wouldn't be one for me, engine bay has been cleaned for the photo's (sort of), uneven pad/disc wear, MOT check shows going through rear tyres every 6k miles and front coil spring snapped.

Been a bit battered and not really looked after to be honest.

 

I'll save you money. Send me 4k and i'll mail you some scrap  :lol:

Crazy price but yeah, its certainly raises alarm bells. 

 

Where are you based? Any Nissan Z specialists around? Offer them a sweetener to come and see it with you :thumbs:

Thanks for all the responses guys - Im looking for a fixer upper 370z or an audi S4, as I'll probably get the car do it up, keep it for about 2-3 months then sell it for usually the same price I paid for it with all parts etc. :)

 

Dont mind bodywork damage etc , will be staying away from mechanical - dont mind swapping out broken parts rads etc 

Will keep my eye out.

 

PS - That 370z sold for £5950 on Copart - just needed a new front end and spraying up.

Was thinking car is prob worth £7500 plus Ive been offered £350 for the number plate as I have my own reg to go - would be swapping off that front bumper and bonnet though.

Looks alright, I'd want to have a really good look around it in the metal though.

Reading the add, looks well worth a viewing.

Run on good oil, filter choice is a little dubious. But other than that seems like they have spent on the car whenever its needed it. Good brake components used.

 

As Sim said, have a good look at it, CAT C so check the repair standards.

Considering its up for 350 money, nothing lost by looking at it

He said its aftermarket as the original bumpers for 370z are quite pricey, same with the CF bonnet he put on. 

I was 50/50 on the bonnet, didn't know it was CF. Thought he had just put clearcoat over the primer they come in :lol:
