David,

A hissing AC mode switch needs to be repaired or replaced. The loud ticking
sound could be your AC compressor clutch rapidly engaging and disengaging.

Dan,

The DeLorean speedo odometer is a standard design therefore it is tamper
proof.

to where my original odometer is, but at this rate, it might be done by next

there any way to disassemble the odometer so I can manually adjust the

I need some suggestions here from people with this type of experience.

Nathan,

You said:
"but it was raining out...this car runs like crap in the rain".


Most poor engine running conditions related to wet weather are caused by
spark-over or arcing due to aged ignition components.

The installation of an Ignition Tune Up Kit will usually correct this
problem.

I have a similar problem.  A little WD-40 spray always gets it moving again.

Subject: Re: Wanted: one or two power window console switches

hello all,

i have generated a lot of helpful mail regarding the mydelorean.com stencil 
kit. now i'm getting curious about this - 

is there a VIN# where the switches went from double arrows to blank?  
obviously the double-arrow seems to be the more desirable.  i have heard 
nothing on this topic until i began looking for these switches last night.  

later,
Andy

Subject: Re: Completely draining automatic transmission

I think what you have in mind is a very bad idea. The fluid pump will 
not take kindly to not having lubricant while it is turning at engine 
speed. If you want to try to get some more fluid out disconnect the 
cooler and drain it. There is no plug on the torque converter so you 
can't get any out of that short of dissasemly. If the fluid is really 
bad you could repeat the drain and fill again soon asumming the trans 
performs well in all other respects.Generaly if the fluid is really 
burnt and discolored then you will have to pull the trans anyway. If 
the fluid is just dirty and not burnt don't worry about it as long as 
all of the seals aren't leaking. Don't forget to check the final drive 
level, it isn't the same fluid it is 90# gear oil.

To jack singer and all other members of the list

I don't know about Virginia but the last time I checked it was still 
part of the U.S.A. It is against FEDERAL law to tamper with a 
speedometer. I live in New Jersey and they take it seriously. On the 
title when you sell the car you certify to the mileage. If the speedo 
is touched it is to be recorded by a sticker on the door. It is true 
in some states after so many years they are more leniant but be warned 
if you tamper with the mileage any purcheser or subsequent owner would 
have the right to come after you for fraud. The lamda counter could 
possibly be used to confirm the mileage and any service records that a 
Delorean vender may have could also help. The bottom line is DON'T 
TAMPER WITH THE SPEEDO.
Having a shop recalibrate is completly legal.To DMC joe the speedo is 
as tamperproof as any car's speedo which is to say that it can be 
tampered with if anyone is so inclined.There are many ways to look at 
a car and estimate the mileage from general appearances to tires 
to wear on interior items.
