Subject: Trailing Arm and a heart attack

Hello,

Today i was trying to spend some time and check my ground wires on ym 
car to see if any were loose.  When i was going to remove the 
passenger side trailing arm cover i notcied that someone else had 
already been in there (by the 2 broken bolts in the rivnuts).  When i 
had the panel off i notcied that someone beat me to cleaning up the 
ground there,  but had removed my trailing arm bolt.  When they did 
was replace it with a threaded stud, and i also have 6 washers on the 
outside with a nut on the end.  So i really have no bolt i guess,  
just a nut. All my drawings and pictures show a bolt.  I can't 
believe i have been driving around with it like this the whole time.  
So now i have to go order some bolts and go through the process of 
removing the rear suspension to replace the bolts.  I now have 
something to do on my vacaction now.

[MODERATOR NOTE - This topic is covered extensively in the archives. Anyone wanting to reply may wish to do it directly to dmcburn75(AT)yahoo.com. Also, the vendors' web pages make looking up parts prices pretty easy.]

Hi all. I know this could be a little personal to some people and some
may not want to answer. But, its comming down to the wire for me and
my DeLorean purchase. I was wondering if you guys could post some of
the common problems you have had and how much it costs to fix...hot
start, fuel pump, alternator, brakes, cooling system, frame POR-15
coating, electrical and anything else anyone has come across... I
understand a DeLorean is an older car and the cost to keep it up will
be higher than normal. Again, thanks guys all this info is greatly
appreciated.

[MODERATOR NOTE - this one is barely passing my snake-oil spam filter, but it seems like a genuine posting from a real list-member. Do your research before dumping anything other than oil in your engine. Miracles rarely occur - dave]

Hi All,

This is not an ad for a product, however I did try something that 
really worked well and I thought i'd share it with all of you. When i 
first pruchased my Delorean (Aug.2001) I had seen an info-mercial for 
something called Z-Max, it was a treatment for your 
engine/transmission/fuel system, and it had something called Lynkite 
in it, which was something I had heard about. I bought it figuring 
i'd try it on my Delorean. I followed the directions and used the 
product and i really didn't notice much, except my transmission 
shifted a little smoother. I figured "oh well" and put it out of my 
mind. Two weeks ago i recieved a package in the mail, It was that Z-
Max stuff again. I guess they send it to you twice a year or 
something. Since the car was running well, and the oil was only 
recently changed, along with a tune up- I thought , ok lets try it 
again.
I used all the products again and within two days, i felt a 
difference. The engine was running much cooler than before with the 
needle barely moving off 120degrees,and i also noticed an improvement 
in accelleration. I used my stopwatch and noticed a several tenths 
difference in my 0-60 times. Apparently,this second treatment worked 
better, because the car ran so much better, and even a little 
quieter. I'm not endorsing the product, all i am saying is that it 
seems to have worked for my Delorean, and since we are all looking 
for better performance from our Deloreans, I just thought i'd pass it 
on. Thanks..

Sincerely,
Steve T.

Wow!!  I had a great time this weekend.  Aaron, Darren, Sean, Scott, and Joe
all of you guys thanks for all the help and info you gave me this weekend.
We had the opportunity to run our D's on the dyno.  Sean had the top speed
at 160 mph.  I think everyone averaged around 100 horsepower in the engine
and 120 at the wheels.
Sunday we took our cars down the tail of the dragon. For those of you that
have never heard of it, it is an 11 mile stretch of road that has 318 turns
in it.  Check out www.tailofthedragon.com  Which i think Sean could have set
a new speed record if it hadn't been for a stupid ford pickup.  It was such
an awesome sight to see D's everywhere on the road, zipping up the
switchbacks and through the turns.
I was just overwhelmed at what a great weekend I had.
Congrats to all the ETDOC members, and I look forward to seeing you all
again soon.

Funny, but one of the things I've seen 928 owners do is swap out the stock

Hi,
    I have my console removed while installing a CD player and would like to 
fix some discoloration on the armrest section near the ash tray.  It had a 
stain on it when I got the car so I lightly used acetone on it but that just 
seemed to removed some of the gray die.  Does anyone know of a die that is a 
good match?  Please drop me an e-mail if you do.

Anything you touch will either break or need to be replaced. Anything that 
works will probably not work much longer (Especially if you touch anything 
around it). Anything that doesn't work will need to be replaced, and probably 
doesn't work because something it's dependent on doesn't work either. I've 
touched a lot of stuff on my car, and the more I touch,  the more it 
costs.... :-)

Seriously, these are fun cars, unique in thier engineering solutions to 
problems that most other manufacturers have found more elegant ways of 
solving. But you won't find a car with as much appeal or personality for what 
it will cost you in the end if you do it intelligently.

Subject: Re: Trailing Arm and a heart attack

Shain - This is what I would call "living life on the edge"!  With 
threaded studs in place of the proper bolts, you have had what we call 
"threads in bearing".  This can cause grooves and gouges in the 
bushings and other inserts in the trailing arm joint.  You may want to 
carefully inspect the bores through the trailing arms, and the sleeves 
through the rubber bushings.  I would guess that it would be a good 
idea to have the alignment checked after you install the correct bolts 
and other hardware in there.  The proper large flat washers are also 
important in the joint to act as a secondary load path in case 
something else should fail, like the rubber bushing attachments bolts. 
Check out the "TOBY-TAB" bolt kits being offered through Specialty 
Automotive (Darryl Tinnerstet) at http://www.delorean-parts.com for 
the best replacement bolts you can get.  We're glad to hear that you 
survived intact from this potential disaster.

David, I am talking about the idle mixture screw on the air flow sensor arm.  
Walt, I'm certain that the recent adjustment resulted in the unmasking of 
this concern because I set the screw right a few months ago and found that it 
did it then too but I put it back rich so I could address other issues.  And 
I think you're right about the cold start injector not operating when it 
should.  Now, what about this business about it not "hunting" for idle after 
started cold?  How does this figure in? What is it symptomatic of, not 
slightly over rich on cold start?

    Thanks, Don VIN 6860

Subject: Re: E-CHECK

There are many reasons why you could have failed your emision test. 
When the PRV-6 is properly tuned up and running it is an exceptionaly 
clean running engine. Start with the basics, it might be time for a 
tune-up replacing the spark plugs, ignition wires, cap, rotor, fuel 
filter. Do an oil change and replace the oil filter. Check the 
ignition timming and make sure there are no vacuum leaks. If that 
doesn't get you to pass then you will have to go to a shop that has an 
exhaust gas analyzer and have them adjust the mixture screw as per the 
Workshop manual. Since you are a brand new owner if you don't yet have 
the manual it should be 1 of the first things on your list of items 
that you order from one of the Delorean venders. Also make sure the 
gas tank is filled with FRESH fuel as stale fuel won't burn well. Some 
parts stores sell additives that guarantee you will pass testing, I 
never have tried them but they do claim to work!
Also make sure you hear the frequency valve buzzing like an angry 
hornet on the right side valve cover, if it isn't that could be the 
problem.

And the meets keep getting better and better.  Starting off in Knoxville 
where we had 5 of the cars ran on a dyno; Sean took the top honors with 160 
mph. Mine was the only automatic to give it a run, gave it up at 137 with 79 
hp...massive there.  Of course, it's hard to get a true read on an 
automatic, but still not real bad on the top end.  From there we gave a 
caravan over to Gatlinburg (no, Smoky Joe made it with absolutely no 
problems, for everyone who knows the story) We all had a great time that 
night at dinner, then later on at the pool.  Some stayed there, others went 
their separate ways for the evening, but the next morning it was on; 9 cars 
converged on the Park Vista (I love the little girl passing by saying 
"Mommy, why do they all look alike?) There were cars from NC, SC, TN, Va, 
and I believe I saw one from GA..and one Corvette.  But we didn't hold that 
against him.  From there we took down through Gatlinburg where we attempted 
to get gas.  9 DeLoreans not only created massive stares, but also massive 
traffic jams.  It was not fun to get them all back out in one line, but with 
a little help from John Weaver blocking the way, soon we were on our merry 
trip.  We stopped for a great group shot (breathtaking, as Aaron described 
it, is an understatement) and from there on, we hit the dragon.. For anyone 
who has not experienced it firsthand, the dragon cannot be completely summed 
in words.  This is my second time with the ETDOC going through the dragon, 
and it's hard on the body, even with an automatic. Going through one banked 
hairpin turn into a completely reverse angle, for 11 miles.  And, as we 
learned this time around, don't have ANYTHING you don't want to end up in 
your lap in the front with you.  Cameras, cell phone, CDs...yeah, they all 
ended up in my floorboard.  And we lost the corvette there.  For a few 
minutes at least.  After a few minutes catching our breath, some of us split 
off and headed back to NC, (and I almost hit a canadian goose) and the 
others went back to Knoxville for dinner.  Again, I would like to thank 
Aaron, Sean, and everyone else involved in the planning.  These keep getting 
better and better!  Maybe a late summer/ early fall dragon run would be a 
good idea?

Subject: Re: Re: Not so hot start problem

Don, When the TTS is working correctly it activates the cold start to inject 
gas to start the car when it's cold or under 95 degree F.  Then,  till the 02 
sensor warms up, the Lambda unit is sending out a fixed pulse to the 
Frequency valve to hold the gas pressure steady in the lower chamber of the 
fuel distributor ( richer )( You should have no seeking at this point. ) , 
then when the 02 sensor heats up and starts measuring the air/fuel mixture, 
the Lambda unit starts adjusting the fuel pressure to the lower chamber of 
the fuel distributor to adjust the mixture. Now is when If your seeking a lot 
the Air flow meter is fighting against the mixture to go rich then lean. 
Adjust the air flow meter when the engine is hot and idling to obtain the 
best smooth idling. That will be close. Best results is with an emissions 
tester.

Shain, I had a similar situation with the Pivot bolt on the standard 
transmission. I found no apparent damage and replaced it with the up grade 
and have had no trouble in the past 5 years. As for the TAB, that goes to 
show you and the group the standard 10.9 grade bolt isn't as bad as a lot of 
people let on to be after all, it takes the abuse and keeps on going. My 10.9 
were bent and loose as I thought they would be but not broken so I replaced 
them with the 12.9 up grade and the rear end feels much tighter. I would 
defiantly check for any damage, but soft metal rubbing on soft metal may not 
have done as much as you thought. Just depends on time.
