Question about 1990 Nissan 300ZX

Nissan 300ZX shakes

My 300zx starts & runs fine but for the first few minutes it sounds like something is off forcing the car to shake back and forth (sometimes violently). It doesn't matter if it's a cold or hot day. It does this for a few minutes and then it runs smooth afterward no matter how long I drive. I have given it a good tune up including changing the spark plugs, distributor cap & wires, the fuel filter, etc. I don't know if I need to get a new fuel pump or get the timing adjusted or what? I'm puzzled. Any advice?

Check items in your fuel lines first, filter, pressure regulator....could be anything running down that line, don't waste your money on a fuel pump until it's the last option

Sounds like you have a problem with the coolant temp sensor, could be sensor or wiring. The coolant temp sensor tells the computer how warm the engine is so that it know how to adjust the mixture, a cooler engine needs more fuel. If the sensor or wiring is messed up, the computer gets a signal that the engine is very cold and the computer gives full rich to the injectors.

okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.
