Payne, Make sure the Idle speed motor connector is pluged in good and 
everything is making contact. No broke wires, so on. That's the first thing I 
would do. The car will have this sympton if above is not working properly. 
The next thing is vacuum.

The symptoms sound like an ignition problem. When you "revved up" the 
engine it temporaly cleared the fouled plug. I would look for a bad 
ignition wire, worn spark plugs, cracked or tracked distributer cap. 
If it has been a while it probably needs a tune-up.

Subject: Re: Temp Sensor - how to test?

Before you go tearing things apart make sure the wire going to the 
sensor is still attached! The sensor is located on the front of the 
right cylinder head and the wire should be green/blue. If all of the 
other gauges are working it is unlikely the problem is in the dash. 
The temp sensor has a low failure rate so the most common thing is a 
wiring problem between the gauge and the sensor. It is very easy to 
knock things loose in the front of the motor because it is so tight to 
work in there. Refer to Wiring Diagram section 2-C+D. The gauge is 
#275 and the sensor is #183

Mike, Be carefull. I would use a filter made for the De Lorean/PRV6 
engine. Not the generic application off the shelf type. The 72150 
Bosch was made for the De Lorean/PRV6, back pressure, fit, so on. You 
can see on my web site. www.specialTauto.com. You might find them at 
any auto parts store that carries Bosch.

The fit maybe is perfect, but the Fram filter does not have the valve that
keeps the oil from draining back into the pan. This will cause a dry start
every time you start your engine. Not something I would want.

Subject: Re: torsion bars & stolen cars- Now Torsion bar I.D.

After a phone call to Darryl he made me realize that the unsplined 
ends of the torsion bars ARE different. The bar for the driver's door 
has a hex on the end and the bar for the passenger door has a square 
end. Not only is it now easy to identify but in the wisdom of the 
origional engineering of the car it would be impossible to mix them 
up. Since I had never had removed both at the same time and had them 
side by side I never noticed the obvious difference.

Look for a problem in the cold start-warm-up systems. Refer to D:01:08 
through :11. You will probably trace the trouble to the Control 
Pressure regulater. Before you replace it check the electrical 
connection to it and make sure it is getting power. Check that the 
plugs for the cpr and cold start valve were not mixed up.

Subject: Alternator and Coolant questions

Hey list.. i've been gone for awhile, real busy!!!
Time to get back to what matters though and get the
Delorean ready for driving.. it sux have 70-80 degree
weather here and having the D sit in the garage.

After replacing my tankzilla, my alternator went out
(no relation, just figures after I can see how far I
can drive, I can't drive)...

It's the alternator... I talked to someone and they
told me that the lightbulb in the dash for the
battery, if it burns out, the actual voltage gauge
won't work on the dash.. is this true?

Secondly - I'm going to be making the purchase of an
alternator from PJ Grady.... I originally wanted to
keep original delorean oem parts, but I dont want to
replace it and just have it go out again...

here is my question, I looked at the alternator in it
(its the dulcier (sp?)).  It looks like there are two
real fat red cables going to it, and attached to a nut
on the alternator... and I have a black wire dangling
that has a little silver cylinder on it (DMC says its
just a noise filter, so it wouldnt affect charging).

Here is my question... I have a PEP boys mechanic who
said he would put the PJ grady alternator on for me...
here is my question... I will not leave the car at a
non-delorean dealership (and DMC and PJ Grady, and
DMCJoe are the only ones I know of), so that leaves me
hiring mechanics to come to the house and do work...

Is the delorean alternator as standard to put in as a
regular say GM alternator?

On my grand-am the alternator just have a plug that
goes in it, the Delorean has cables... and I heard
something about having to hook a special wire to the
dash board light...

If I give this pep-boys guy (far from an expert, but
he does change altnerators) an alternator for the D,
will he be able to change it, or is it more involved?

Secondly, anti-freeze leaks out of the front of my D
from somewhere... any place I should look?  I dont see
a radiator up there.. it doesnt over heat.

Third - If you are a Delorean mechanic (DMCJoe???),
and want a free expense paid trip to New Mexico, AND
be paid towork on my car, if anything else goes wrong
with it after the alternator and the anti-freeze leak,
I am considering paying someone who knows the cars to
come out and just fix everything that can go wrong.

I cringe at the thought of shipping the car - its in
perfect shape and my luck I'd get a trucker transport
like the one that moved us here from North Carolina
that busted our big screen TV because he was an idiot.

That's high...

I paid 16.5 for my 81, it has 4000 miles, mint

I am a little worried about using my air cut-off wheel tool and mig 
in this area since the fuel tank is right behind this member. Sparks

Subject: Re: Rough idle and hard starting.

Okay, I have an update on my problem.  When I would give it gas, the engine
would kind of stumble a little bit and then rev.  It was smooth as long as I
was giving it gas, and would drive perfectly.  It seemed to have all it's
power, just would keep dying at idle as if it were idling too low.  I
thought it may be an ingnition problem, but everything seems to be firing
right when I'm driving.  So what would cause hard starting and a rough idle
when warm?  I pulled one of the spark plugs yesterday and it wasn't worn at
all, blackened, but not excessively charred.  The plug had a silvery-gray
liquid around the threads, not like motor oil, possibly anti-seize compound?

Today I started the car, it fired up first crank without giving it any gas.
Sure, it idled a little rough, but it always has when cold.  I let it warm
up and drove for a few minutes.  After driving it idled smoothly at 600 or
so RPMs with minimal vibrations.  I'll just wait and see what happens
tomorrow when I drive to work.  Where is the location of the idle speed
motor?  I'll check all the connections and clean everything up.

Thanks for everyone's help!  I want to get my baby running normal again.

Subject: Re: Oil filter and cross reference info

SUBSTITUTE AT YOUR OWN RISK! Not too long ago James Espey had some 
filters cut open. The differences are great. In general the parts sold 
by the Delorean venders are of higher quality than the "will fit" 
parts that you can obtain localy. Usually you will know when you will 
need an oil filter so there is plenty of time to order one. They also 
supply the copper gasket that should be replaced for the drain plug. 
IMHO we owners should purchase the parts we need for our cars from the 
venders who make a living keeping the supply of parts available from 
the door pistons which have to be specially manufactured to the oil 
filters you might be able to get localy. Only through the business 
that we generate are the Delorean venders able to continue to source 
parts that are no longer manufactured. Take for example the new door 
handles. No owner or club could afford to have them made. The sales we 
make with the venders goes toward this effort including oil filters. 
You could complain about the high price of parts but think where you 
would be and if you would even have your Delorean if many of the parts 
were not available at all!

Subject: A great day with my "D"

Hello all!

Yesterday I got my car back from the shop it had been at for the past 2 weeks
for some major service since it had finally gotten to the 30.000 miles after 20 years.
They replaced a lot of things on the engine and adjusted everything properly.
I also had them replace my Cat with a pipe, to get the exhaust less restrictive.
Since I live in The Netherlands this is allowed. I haven't really driven it a
lot yet,
but I can allready feel the difference: the car sounds somewhat throatier and
runs MUCH smoother now.

Since there was a special event for hadicapped people today, the Truck Tour
Tilburg  (TTT)(Tilburg is a city I live nearby) I decided to go take a look with
my "D".
The TTT is an event in which handicapped people are invited to come ride in a
big truck end take a tour around the surrounding area. This year it sported 250
Truck in 4 groups of about 65, with several motorcycleclubs as entourage.

I parked alog the side of the road facing the aproaching trucks, put up the
doors and allmost instantly got a crowd around the car, BOY do I LOVE this! I
got a totally new remark too:
someone called me Luke, I asked him why and i got his answer: he ment Luke
skywalker, since I also flew an X-wing! VERY original to hear, I've gotten quite
used to the BTTF-remarks...

After the last group of trucks I joined in and drove along for several miles,
a lot of people were waving and staring at me even more than they were at the
fully loaded Kenworth trucks (those are really not that common over here) and
Harley Davidsons in front of me.

The day is only half way yet and it's allready been great!

Earlier I suggested an ignition problem. Is the rough idling affected 
by moisture? Is it worse on wet days? Another possability is a dirty 
or bad fuel injector. All 6 fuel injectors must be very close to each 
other in pressures and spray or you will not have a smooth idle. I 
still think the main area to attack is the ignition system first.

Sorry bout that , I should have clarified. Cross the fram ph2870A to a
purolator with the valve or any other filter with a valve in it .

I have the PJ Grady Alternator on my car as well.  It works great.  
Installation is very simple, but the best thing to do if you have a question 
when installing it is to call Rob and ask him.  I am sure he will be more 
than happy to help you install it over the hpone, especially since its one of 
his products.

You really do need to install the ss braided clutch line.  The OEM plastic
line will swell when it gets hot and you will not be able to cycle the
clutch.  If the cooling lines have not been changed recently, you should
change them.  Check your fuel accumulator and filter, also the fuel lines
from the tank.  Install the SS coolant bottle if you still have the plastic
one.

I am restoring a delorean (vin 2349)that I have had about 6 months.I
plan on using it as a daily driver.I have the engine and trans. out
of the car.I had the engine rebuilt which was probally a waste of
money after see the inside.(has about 40,000 miles)My question is
since I have the engine and trans out what else should I replace.The
clutch has been replaced and looks in good shape.The slave cylinder
doesn't leak but I'm considering replacing it and getting a ss
braided line. I'm also thinking about replacing the water pump and
hoses.I would appreciate any suggestions or
comments.                                   Thanks Charles 2349

I spoke with the guys at Sunstar last month, and they were still
experimenting with different methods of replicating the brushed stainless
finish. They were still shooting for a release in June/July.

Originally, on www.diecastmuscle.com they had the car listed to come out in
June of 2001, but somehow between then and now the car was pushed back even
further to Sept of 2001.  I believe I read previously on the DML that the
company (Sunstar) was having difficulty reproducing the stainless steel
panels and was consulting with Lee Seiler.  I surely hope this is the last
delay, as I have had the car pre-ordered since December of 2000.
