R34 Gtt Ignition Drama?

Recommended Posts

Any of you R34 owners had or have heard of this problem. First some back ground info. I have had my car for about 6 months now, it is a Tiptronic-Auto. Just serviced and also has a new battery. The problem is that I seem to have some difficulty starting the car. This only seems to happen after the car has been running for some time. For example, go for a 15min drive, not really pushing the car. Pull up at a corner shop turning car off, come out a minute later and wham, the car just won't turn over. ( I let the fuel pump churn over everytime I start the car).

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks for the quick reply guys. What I find strange though is that it used to start on queue first time everytime until just recently. I will try to call Nissan and see what they say.

nsm034, do you know where I can find more info if any on this R34 recall??

Skyline recalls:


A couple there that look like they could be related to your problem.

Thanks Ant for the those details. It is a very informative site. I even found the recall for my little old Hyundai Excel from many years ago in it hehehehe.

If I'm reading the site info correctly, only 2 of these recalls can possibly affect my car as my car was made in 8/2000. One of these is ruled out as it is for police cars and the other doesn't list my cars model number.

RJ-0887-0 NISSAN SKYLINE 23/12/1998 - 27/04/2001 speedometer

RJ-0946-0 NISSAN SKYLINE 25/05/1999 - 31/03/2003 brake lights

SO, I guess I am back to square one again.......unless somebody else knows or has experienced this type of problem???

So does it kick over and not start or not kick over at all?

Also 4 litres without the filter or 4.5-.4.7 (can't remember exactly) if you replace the filter as well.  More info in pm to folow.

The car starts perfectly every morning when I drive her out of the garage. (turn key count 1, 2 1/2 START. But on a hot start count 1, 2,- 10 even still won't start. Then I wind back key so no auxiliary is on then wait 20 seconds, then turn key. Count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 then it turns over and starts. It is getting very frustrating.

    • I do have a tiny tiny misfire occasionally but I think it's because I got a little fuel down into a plug tube so I'll pull the coils out and see if I can dry those out. 
    • Ok, so here the embarrassing 'fess up' post. Here's the crack, or broken part of the old valve cover. Pretty obvious break and in hindsight it's quite the face palmer 🤦‍♂️ but let me explain why I didn't think this was a problem. This side part of the valve cover is an additional piece, it protrudes from the main valve cover and it's also where the fuel rail mounts.....  You can see the rail at the bottom and you can see this external piece hanging off the side of the cover. It almost looks sandwiched in this pic.  Here's another cover with that side piece ...  On top of this, when looking at the inside of the cover, there were no openings(*) for that section. So I really just thought I'd broken some crispy plastic mount for the fuel rail.... Until somebody drew my attention to the air openings at the BOTTOM of the cover, not INSIDE the cover. So, I had a ginormous PCV leak. The cover needed to go and I should have taken everybodies advice and got a new one in the first place. The original one is just fried, its really brittle. It was nice to have the new one be really snug in position and the screws were slightly tight to do up which was completely different to the original ones that almost undid themselves.    
    • Pulled out this pile of shit, will be refreshed soon enough. Had coolant hit my face and I accidentally tasted it.  It's sweet.
    • Looks awesome. Well done. I'd love to drive Laguna Seca! 
    • This video is great, the enthusiasm is infectious and it's kind of cute. It's great to see these things being used properly on track, it reminds me of track days of old. It is a bit funny seeing everyone so excited about Skylines, whereas here they're all considered a bit nuggety or shitboxy. If this seems odd to you mr OP, imagine all of us being this giddy about seeing 30 C5 Vettes on a track at once place, full of influencers taking their videos and posting for clout. That said, you did a great job conveying the fun and excitement of a track day, getting out there and just having some damn fun.
