Subject: delorean question


I've recently purchased a dmc-12 and have a question about
a rusty hole in a pipe in the engine. Here is a picture of the spot
if anyone can look at it and identify the part or problem...

The pipe in question leads down to the exhaust manifold. Warms the air
entering the engine on those cold days. You can find this part at your local
auto parts house.

This hose connects the heat stove on the exhaust manifold to the air 
mixture box for the fresh air intake. The hose on my car was worse 
off. Any auto parts store will carry a compatable hose to replace this 
part. However all the new hoses I've seen are black. Myself, when I 
did have this assembly in place, the black looked much more suttle. 
But if you're a stickler for originality, the silver hose is the 
proper color.

I believe that is part# 105926  INL Duct-Temp Sensor. From the 
description I suppose

it has somthing to do with the tempurature sensor.

 

I think that the pipe wears out and rusts over time. The pipe on my D is 
pretty rusty.

Rust may have eaten through yours.

Hate to say it, but the Purolator does not have the valve in it either.
The three filters that I know have the valve in them
are...Volvo...Bosch....Purflux.

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 .

Subject: Re: Delorean Advice

The clutch hydraulic system is pretty much the least favorite part of 
my car. Coolant hoses shouldn't be a problem. You just have to slide 
under the car to get them, and then bleed the system. The stainless 
braided line is an absolute must. As stated before, when the platic 
line gets hot, it will expand. This will cause premature wear of the 
clutch (doesn't allow full force to be applied). If you're going to go 
all out, I would also replace the slave cylinder, and the master 
cylinder as well. I'd reccomend the HCR series mastercylinder P.J. 
Grady carries. Depending upon the condition of the clutch, you may 
want to consider replacing it as well. But that's up to you. If 
anything is worth doing, it's worth doing right...

Hello List,
    The Amsoil SDF42 oil  filter also has the anti-drain back valve.  They 
are pretty expensive but worth it I think.  I also bought an amsoil life-time 
air filter and will probably put Amsoil oil in my car at the next oil change. 
 I believe it is $9.50 per quart.(25,000 mile)  Does anyone on the list use 
amsoil in there car?  Is it really safe to go 25,000 miles if you keep 
changing your filter?

later
David

I have been reading interesting if not vital information about the correct oil filter for a DeLorean but unless I missed it, no one has mentioned the Valvoline VO-15 filter as being an approved filter, yet that is what I was sold by a DeLorean parts dealer. Can anyone say if the Valvoline VO-15 an approved filter?

Thanks ever so much.

I suggest that our experienced DeLorean parts suppliers are probably 
the best source of parts and that they are likely better equipped to 
provide good parts advice than most of the list subscribers. If you 
have questions about a part you purchased from a DeLorean parts 
supplier, the best approach would be to contact your supplier 
directly. Most parts suppliers would be happy to explain aspects of 
any parts they sell.

Don't forget the coolant hoses that are under the intake manifold!
