Customer Question
While having my father's car...
While having my father's car restored, ( 1985 Non-turbo 300zx) we have run into a problem. The car was repaired and running like a top until the mechanic repaired the A/c. Now the car is running rough...the A/C is ice cold but....well, it is worthless with the car running so rough and almost dieing...

I took the car in running great and as soon as they repaired the A/C and was taking it for a test drive to make sure it was all fine, it started "running rough".

Sounds like they didn't hook the ac clutch back up, or loosened an oil cap, can you open the hood and tell me if the oil cap or dipsrick is loose in the hole?

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
