New to the 240sx forum, need help
So I just purchased a 1996 240sx with an auto transmission. The interior and exterior are in fair shape although the transmission seems to need work. The issue itself seems to be that it will not allow the car to go past 55Mph. I spoke with a friend of mine who studied in Nissan mechanics and from what I have told him it seems to him that it could either be a timing belt/ a bad heater core hose or something else. The engine itself has no issues on diagnostics. Will be on here periodically to reply to messages

Whatís up guys. Name is Arturo. Just bought a 91 240 couple hours ago. Been lurking but canít see pictures so I finally registered. Based in dallas tx so hit me up if you want to chill or hang. Currently work in construction (in the office) but going to school at night. Been wrenching since I was a kid with my pops but finally got a project of my own to keep.

Hey guys, joining up because I have two friends with 240s. Both are red early 90s hatches, 1 of which with the ka24de and the other with a Lexus 1uz Fe swap. Just driving up here to get some information, and learn what I can from you veterans. I look forward to speaking with all of you.

What's up everyone? My name is Vince and I live in the Bay Area. I decided to join these forums because I'm trying to sell my car. I've owned my 1998 240sx since 2002. I know someone on these forums will want her and transform her to something great. Thanks all.

Hi, I have been a member of this forum for nearly two just to look through the threads, but I cannot recall whether I have introduced myself or not. Right now, there's a 1990 240SX sitting in my mom's garage waiting for either my brother or myself to take it over. When it was running, the engine was fine but the automatic transmission was going according to my cousin who used to own the vehicle, so it hasn't been driven for well over 10 years.

I currently drive a 2017 WRX Prem. M6, and while I am thoroughly enjoying the vehicle being stock, my 3 years 36 mi. warranty can't come soon enough! In the meantime, the 240 is located in Southern Maryland while I am up here in the Greater Philadelphia region. Can anyone suggest any nearby shops that could help with a transmission/engineer swap/rebuild? I would be interested in talking to someone about the process as I read through the information that this forum has to offer. Do shops typically offer a close relationship between customer and the cars they are commissioned to swap/rebuild?

Hello hello! New to the forum. My name is Nelson and I have a 92 nissan 240sx fastback. Right now my car is pretty much stock and just replacing parts that are showing its age and worn down.

SkiTown_wrx 02-08-2018 10:56 PM

Hello! My name is Curtis. I have just become the proud owner of a 1992 240sx hatch manual. The previous owner had just finished up with a rebuild of the ka24de. The car is currently not running but I have been troubleshooting for the past few days. The interior was completely stripped beside the dash and drivers seat. I'm excited to finally have car to work on other than my daily driver. I've joined this community to help with any issues and to point me in the right direction with this build.

Hello, new to the forum, from So CA. Just acquired a 93 S13 hatch with my 17 yr old son as a project. 19 year old son has a 91 S13 that we've been working on for the past 2 years.

Thanks for all of the great info!

Hello everyone I’m new here just want to say what’s up

ram0042 04-06-2018 01:49 PM

Hey guys,
I joined not too long ago. I love the Nissan world and spend some time thinking about cars everyday. I don't have a 240 but have a Versa. I got friends with 350's and 240's anyway and enjoy spending time wrenching.

flartius 04-11-2018 12:20 PM

Hey guys, joined almost a year ago and just wanted to stop lurking and maybe share some of the knowledge I gained doing my RB swap.

punang31 04-24-2018 01:25 PM

Sup to all, newbie here, got a 96 Zenki, from Miami, fl, little Havana area.

Hey everyone! My names Trevor and recently purchased a 89' 240sx Hatchback and am excited to get into all the 240 hype. Will be building it from the ground up as my new project car.

JaredAP 06-13-2018 08:27 PM

Hey, everyone! I'm the proud owner of a 1990 240SX, which I picked up a few years back. I've learned a lot about maintenance and repair since owning it, and it's been fun - mostly!

I actually found this forum for the first time about a year ago, when I was looking for an answer to a problem, and I'll post a "thank you" in the appropriate thread when I am able!

Looking forward to learning more from you all, and keeping this car running as long as I can.

Hey Guys Joined not too long ago looking for a new s13 or 14 to start my first s chassis!! Cant wait to start a new build and learn the ins and outs of the s chassis!!

Edit: Please help still have not been activated and its been more than 2 weeks since i post...

tunabossftw 10-30-2018 01:37 AM

Hey all, Spencer here from Vancouver, Canada. Looking at picking up a 240sx s14 in the next year or so. Will be setting it up as a daily driver, aside from the winter, that also will double as a simple drift car for the track days. A little tight on the budget right now and would prefer not to take a loan out of the bank, therefore no s14 unless a golden, perfect one pops up nearby. looking forward to talking and learning with all of you. :)

CeeMarsh 12-11-2018 12:03 PM

Greetings from the DMV.
Came across after searching a few less active 240 forums, I've migrated here!

Hey y’all i just joined, I actually don’t have a 240sx but my bf does and I figured joining the forums would make navigating it a little easier, plus easier to find parts haha.

He has a 92 S13 coupe that’s one of the main projects rn and an S13 hatch that’s going to be a project later on.
The coupe has a CA18DET swap we’re trying to get running rn but having a few issues with, it’s very close tho.
I have a couple of cars myself, one is a 78 Volvo 242gt, so I kinda have a 240 just not a Nissan lmao I also have an 85 Celica Supra that’s my daily
