1980 Nissan 280ZX 2+2 GL 6Cyl2.8L - Engine
why does my car die when i press down on the throttle?
My car has been sitting for about 3yrs. I've replaced the fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump. To get it to start i have to spray starter fluid, it will start, but when i press on the throttle it will run for a few seconds then it will die. And i noticed the fuel pump remain on when it is running, when it suppose to shut off after priming.

    You could have bad fuel since the car has been sitting for 3 years.

    I cleaned the tank and put new gas, replaced all those things before i tried starting the car.

    If it will only run with starting fluid, then there is a fuel delivery problem. Have you checked fuel pressure? Did you also replace the fuel filter?
