Looks like something Zoren would try to use. He's the only one who'd say quack.

Got the car back from the shop yesterday. New motor mounts feel good but im still trying to figure out what's up with my car. I'm probably going to pull the injectors and get them bench tested, and at the same time, I'll pull the spark plugs and check them. I changed them out at around 80k i think?

Pulled my fuel injectors today and tested them. Found two faulty injectors in cylinders two and four. I will be ordering a brand new set of fuel injectors for build. Enjoying working on my Z!

I'm going to still test my stock injectors whenever I put the new higher capacity ones in. I'm curious to know what kind of shape they are in.

Depends I found out for myself before with other vehicles I have owned in the past it’s your luck of the draw with fuel injector life. Been using top tier gasoline as recommended by Nissan about 95% of the time. I had a slight hesitation or “Hiccup at idle”. Injectors in cylinders two and four were not making a consistent
pulsing noise when diagnosed. O rings on injectors in cylinders two,four,and five looked bad. In my experience I found using Chevron fuel injector cleaner works at keeping your fuel injectors clean and fuel spray pattern correct. I recommend using fuel injector cleaner and fuel system cleaner it will help. The stock fuel injectors are nice to have as spares on hand. I got these fuel injectors yesterday!! Will be using them for my rebuild.

I told you that stuff doesn't work. Chevron is one of the worst top tier fuels out there.

Shell gas is the best. It cost more but it is worth it because they use the best additives of the all.

It’s never too late to switch fuels. I have seen Shell 93 near me I can use it on my fill ups.
