Hey, I'm new to this group. I was curious as to whether the webpage is still used at all? most posts seem like 12 years old or older! I recently purchased my first 240sx. It is a 1990 hatch. Thank goodness it's in immaculate shape for its age! I do have one issue that I would like to research specifically and that is the heat in the car. The car blows air at all settings however, it is not very warm at all which is concerning to me because I live in Canada and it's freakin cold out!!! anyway, if you could point me in the right direction it would be VERY helpful. I also plan on swapping my KA24E to a CA18DET and I was curious as to whether or not there are any forums relating to the topic? Thanks in advance!

Try burping the coolant system. You could have an air bubble. If that checks out, move on to next.

Make sure you have a thermostat in it. That will cause it not to get up to temp/not blow hot air.

If that is good, your core could be plugged.

Hi guys, im not necessary new here because I have only posted once, but I want to ask some questions but can't start one because it has been disabled till I introduce myself, Here I am I have a 1990 Single Cam 240sx it's been in the family for 8 years and It's not the most perfect one since it has rust in the drivers frame rail (Typical 240sx in the east) but I plan on restoring it and keeping it in the family saving a 240 after all no matter what the money is spent fixing it, Money can't buy history and memories so selling it would be a big no no. By the way nice to meet everyone

Craigslist or Facebook. Probably the first and easiest places to look.

Hello! I'm Sallye, been wanting to move to a rwd platform since I moved out of the land of snow and salt (NY) to Clemson. Currently taking a year off from classes to intern and found an '89 (RB20 swapped) at the right price. Isn't running currently, but it should be a fun challenge to get 'im going.

Any recommendations for other forums to join regarding the RB20? I know that isn't exactly the popular swap choice here.

New here as well. My 240 is a 98 SE 5-speed I've had about 12 years. Lot of upgrade paths and directions to go in, and I'm hoping to find firsthand information on parts that work, parts that don't, or why I should or shouldn't do some of the things I think about doing.

hey, new to the forum just bought a 1993 s13 hatch. I absolutely love it, got it for a steal. straight body clean interior and decent upgrades in the suspension, stock ka24de motor with only 108,737 miles on it! has back and front sway bars and upgraded rotors. Its not completely perfect, has cracked windshield and dash, the hatch supports wont stay up on there own, and has a rusty driver side frame rail. Its sadly automatic but definitely looking into making it a manual. No other rust on the car which is surprising for a 24 years old car in new york city lol. Otherwise i think i was very lucky to find this car and get such a good deal. Im just now trying to get into the project car world so any advice on anything 240sx related will be appreciated!

Hey I'm looking for some help identifying an electrical issue. Might be a couple things. Some background: I recently purchased the vehicle and it's been running great except the starter seems a bit sluggish turning over. The car is a 90 s13 hatch with a sr20det swap. The battery is relocated in the trunk (I just bought a new one). My problem is it's starting intermittently now. When it won't start, everything else has power and seems to be functioning (fans, lights...). The lights dim when I try to start it but there is no sound or clicking. I can push start it and it drives flawlessly. It seems to start back up better on it's own while warm, when I've tested it. I started checking grounds but I haven't been able to find solid answers on where all of them are supposed to be. The one in the trunk is definitely good. And the positive wire has power at the fusebox. Any insight into this would be helpful

Smile Hi All new here.

Hi All,
My name is Mateusz but you can call me Mati. I'm new on here. As of october i became a owner of a all stock 1996 Nissan 240sx with 61k original miles.
I'm planning on restoring the car and i will have it repainted from the Ruby Pearl to a more nicer color such as dark gray.
I also had to order a new cluster because my odometer stopped working after i drove for about 100 miles. Also when i got the car it has been sitting in a garage for 6 years not being driven. So you could call it a barn find.

Hey guys. New here with a 1995 S14 (Zenki). Ive got about 196,000 miles on her and the stock KA. Ive been reading about 240s for years and finally got one. I live in the Dallas, TX (Garland) area and have been looking for a good shop or group of guys who know how to work on 240s. There used to be a shop/crew called Intercrew that was popular back in the day but now it seems that the business is closed or closing. Any help on meet-ups and stuff would be great.

And im not a robot.

Hey I am new to the forum as well. My 240SX does not blow hot air either. When you say check the thermostat I was curious about that because mine has sensors and not a thermostat. I have had sensors replaced before.
Could it be your switch is stuck inside the dashboard. My switch gets stuck and I basically have to manually unstick it to get it in the hot or cold setting.

BTW don't you just love riding around in the 240sx! what a ride and everyone asks me if they can buy it. I need some work done though. Its a regular labor of love. I hope I never have to give it up. I use to have a 280Z back in the day and I regret giving that car up.

I've been a member here for awhile but rarely post so I think I still can't post pics or links.

Anyways, I'm selling my S14 if anyone is interested. It's got a Mishimoto radiator, stock KA24DE engine, stock LSD, Michelin Defender tires with 90K mile warranty (they have 60K miles left), & EGR delete. Very clean.

Here's the ad: Looking to sell or trade my 1995 Nissan 240sx. Price firm, cash only. Clean, 161k miles, runs but needs new water pump & some work on power steering, clean title, black leather interior & pearl white exterior in decent condition (better than most 240's out there). Has Sylvia bodykit.

Potential trade: in the $2000-$2500 range plus cash to make $4000, must have 4 seats, must have clean title, must be reliable to use for daily driver with cheap maintenance (no BMW's), preference to something that's more of a fun ride. No trucks/SUVs. Manual only. Must pass mechanic inspection.

Welcome Chris
Sounds like you have a beast of a project in store.
I'm gonna be making my way out there before the end of the year. Hopefully my shit will be done and ready to play by then.
