Nissan 370Z Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
The fondness of sports car like Nissan 370Z lies in nothing but the high speed brought by high performance. It is a pity that it would still brake down in the end just like any other vehicle type without exception for Nissan 370Z. That is why you should learn about problems and solutions to maintain it in a better way:
First, engine performance suffers. This is a rather serious problem especially for a sports car like Nissan 370Z that pursues high performance. Some 370Z drivers told when the vehicle reached at a certain mileage, audible whining noises would come from the engine, engine performance sufferings include decrease in power, acceleration and fuel economy. Hard starting or inability to start happens from time to time as well, but this is mostly caused by faulty 370Z ignition lock assembly or oxygen sensor. But the rough running engine is attributed to defective 370Z road bearing, fuel pump, air filter, throttle body gasket, oil pump, oil filter and timing chain.
Second, suspension and braking issues. Suspension failure is very easy to recognize in your Nissan 370Z. Based on some professional mechanicals, if you could hear clunking noises and feel excessive vibration while driving, see abnormal tire wear and feel harder to control the steering wheel as it steers unintentionally, then both 370Z steering knuckle and wheel bearing need thorough inspection. As braking failure often manifests as noisy and poorly brakes as well as pulsating brake pedal, so you could replace the brake pad set directly.
In order to sustain your Nissan 370Z's overall high performance, you need to spare more efforts in maintaining rather than only take reaction measures. Some auto parts could not as long as the vehicle could after all. Some electrical parts such as brake light switch, oil pressure switch, ignition switch and door jamb switch would wear out after using for a long time. Wiper blade made of rubber could break due to overexposure to heat, sun and other harsh weathers, so could the emblem. They all should get maintained routinely. Seat belt and cabin air filter should, too.
