Subject: #1 cylinder problems


List,

    I haven't had much time to work on the #1 cylinder problem. I did 
manage to remove the spark plug wire . That wasn't easy, and putting it 
back was worse. The wire checks good. It is 452 ohms  and 16" long , 
made from Taylor 8mm silicon _at_dml_350 ohms per foot. I have a dc power 
supply that goes up to 32 volts. It showed  70 ma current  when hooked 
up tp the supply.  I twisted and pulled it as hard as I could and the 
current remained the same. So, the wire seems to be good unless it 
breaks down at high voltage. I'm going to look at it tonight in the dark 
to see if I can see any stray sparks flying around.
    I am wondering if I can do a compression check using the injector 
port? My compression gauge has a 45 degree bend in it and I wouldn't be 
able to get it in the spark plug hole.
    And yes , the plug carbons up , it does NOT get fuel nor does it get 
oil on it.
    I will keep you posted when I have the time to work on it some more. 
Thanks to all that have answered so far!

Steve

Subject: losing power



I have a 1981 (#5210) with about 10,300 miles. For the last couple 
months, the car has been looning alot of power. I'm pretty sure the 
accumulator needs to be replaced (starts fine cold, but not hot), but 
would this cause the car to loose power? Off the line, I need to play 
with the gas a bit to get it to go. I use only 93 octane and have 
used injector cleaner. 

Please help.

You can keep the old wire, simply put a fibre glas hose
over it that can handle the temp.

I did this on several cars so far, sometimes just for

You should take note that the DPNW option uses the stock door lock 
controller. This device has several known problems and should not be used. 
You can either rebuild it using the directions from the Tech Section or 
purchase a LockZilla. I went the rebuild route, but that required lots of 
soldering, which isn't easy if you don't deal with electronics a lot.

Another option you might want to consider is buying the LockZilla and the 
Wings-A-Loft remote. This gives you good reliability, while still costing 
less then buying both Zillas.

hi everyone im wanting to remove my fuel pump boot{black rubber

condition.my problem is the return pipe which goes through it, its 
natraly all bendy and it looks like originaly at the factory the 
straight piece was put through the boot and then the nut applied 
after.so my question is do i have to pull or cut the nut off and pull 
the pipe out that way or can i pull it the other way with the bendy 
bits stretching through the rubber without damaging it.my other 
question is i want to replace the ends of the metal fuel line {nob 
things with threads on} the ends which goe onto the nut which the 
rubber fuel line pushes on to.are these a special american type thread
[im in the uk]as iv been told or metric etc and are they tapered.also 
is it a type of olive which the nut pushes against making it bite 
into the metal pipe  creating a seal

I find that for the most part the wiring harnesses are OK. You may
have to retape it but you don't have to replace it. I think trying to
replace all the wires with a higher temp rating is overkill and you
will not be able to duplicate the color scheme, many of the wires are
not a solid color, they have a "tracer" color. It is a line of color
on the side. Just replace the wire going to the temp sender and you
could also try using a high temp cover. This is the only wire that
gets "cooked". Of course you must make sure that the harness is routed
correctly and is not near any sharp edges or hot spots. The routing of
the wiring and the location of the clips in the engine compartment is
a subject of one of the Factory Bulletins.

Hi, this is just to update on the progress of my auto to 5-speed. My 
computer went down not long ago, and to make a long story short I 
lost a lot of emails I saved. Anyway the auto tranny is still in the

the tranny and other parts come out to fit the 5-speed. I will try 
and find anyone who was interested and let you know the shipping 
cost. Since I don't know the full condition of the tranny and other

Subject: Re: Fuel Injector Pressure vs Fuel Consumption


Fuel consumption is usually miles/gallon of fuel - right? So, you 
need to measure miles and fuel then do the math based on the last 
cumulative reset. I would think there are aftermarket folks that 
sell these types of in-car calculators if you can figure out how to 
provide the fuel input (probably the sender unit) and the mileage 
input (more difficult to obtain electronically on the D of course). 
Seems like I remember once upon a time a company sold a vacuum 
reading unit that could be calibrated for your engine that would 
calculate mpg (an approximation) based on the average manifold 
vacuum reading over time (clock provided in the unit). I think I saw 
it on the JC Whitney site - but I haven't searched to verify.

Wire repairs are part & parcel of vintage vehicle ownership,
especially in the engine compartment. Is a harsh environment for
electrical systems (with planned obsolescence to begin with!). Wires
that drape across an engine fare the worst -- electric choke, A/C
solenoid, etc. A survey of DeLo owners would probably find MANY
replaced connectors and even wire splices in the engine compartment.

BTW: you don't have to replace an entire wiring harness to correct a
single offending wire or connector -- simply cut off the damaged
portion and replace it. Can even be done within a wrapped harness by
removing some of the factory tape, making the repair, then re-wrapping
with new tape (I just did such where a trim screw punctured into a
wire bundle and caused a short circuit).

While my DeLo was still using a K Jetronic manifold, I relocated its
engine wiring harness to the passenger valve cover (passed under the
air filter in the space between the its fresh air port and the intake
manifold "runners"/"risers"). Required lengthening two wires within
the bundle as I recall. Allowed me to drop the intake manifold
straight down rather than swooping it sideways under the harness. Is
now a moot point of course.

Subject: Re: Fuel Injector Pressure vs Fuel Consumption



All 6 *ARE* connected to the same point -- there's only 1 fuel
metering piston.

Hoses appear to be evolution from the original fuel injection manifold
(for example Volvo's 1975 B27E, never imported into US in lieu of it's
own inline 6). That unit stood high above the engine like a 6 legged
stool, with hoses dropping from a central point down to each intake
port. Makes sense for that design. I have a picture one one of my
computers that I'll upload to #5939's photo album.

Later B27/B28 fuel injection manifold is indeed difficult to work
with. I suspect that's one reason Renault opted for thin 1/8" steel
lines versus Volvo's fat flouroelastometric ones (note that inside
those fat hoses are thin 1/8" hard plastic lines -- all that rubber is
for protection only).

B280/3.0 jetisoned the later design altogether for a low profile unit
with injectors (EFI) in the manifold, not heads. Combined with a
relocated ignition distributor, makes for *MUCH* easier maintenance
and repair.

Subject: Re: Radio Upgrade


The stock speakers suck. There's no way around it, the sizes are
terrible, and the backs are difficult to get to. Even if you could,
why would you want to replace them - you can't buy a decent sounding
4x10 to save your life.

I installed 4" speakers up front. Your speakers up there are mounted
up inside the dash, flush with the top, so as you can see modern
speakers don't work very well due to the tweeters sticking up a bit.
How did I fit the 4 inchers? If you look under the dash, the speakers
are up inside what can only be described as "inverted cupholders".
There's like a hollow channel in the dash that they mount way up into.

So, to get 4" speakers, don't put them up into the hollow space. The
"woofer" on a 4" speaker fits almost perfectly in that hole, the
bracket to mount it doesn't. Instead, mount the bracket to the
underside of the dash, so the woofer is sending the sound through that
little channel and out the holes in the top of your dash. Some short
self-tapping wood screws did the trick nicely.

Another option is to eliminate the front speakers alltogether, and
instead buy kick-panel boxes from Don Steger _at_dml_
deloreanmotorcenter.com. I believe that gets you 5.25" speakers up
front. I'm planning to buy a set of these myself, though I'll still
use the 4" speakers on a crossover to help fill the sound.

In the back, the 4x10s aren't even worth replacing. I just left mine
in, cut two holes in the back panel and mounted a couple of Boston
Acoustic 6" speakers. The sound is a hundred times improved.

Amps come next, not sure where I'm going to mount mine. I'd thought
about up front, but might see if I can get something under the seat
instead. Heat is a concern there, though. I won't do it if there is a
possibility of damaging the seats.

After reading this, I went to watch the movie trailer again. Granted,
I've no idea if the writer of this article and I watched the same
thing, but there is no Streched DeLorean limo. There is a Strectched
Lamborghini Contach limo, but no DeLorean.

With the quick action shots, I could easily see how someone could have
made the mistake.

Subject: Wierd mechanical problems



Well here we go again.  I may post quite a few more of these so bare 
with me.  When I bought my D' it wasn't in the best of shape. On 
Monday of this week my heater hose burst and literally sprayed anti-
freeze all over the place and emptied my coolant tank.  I have just 
replaced all of the radiator and heater hoses (there were 6 
including the one that burst).  I picked it up yesterday from the 
shop and it ran fine for about 20 miles.  At the end of those 20 
miles the RPM's started jumping and there was this strange whining 
noise coming from the transmission.  My oil pressure jumped to 
almost 80 psi and then the car just died on me in the middle of 
traffic.  It wouldn't start for about three minutes.  Then after 
trying to limp it home it did the same thing.  The RPM's jumped, 
whine in the transmission and rising oil pressure, then it shut off 
again.  I finally got it home and into my garage.  Now what I think 
happend is while the pressurized hose was spraying coolant 
everywhere it got into places that it shouldn't have and is now 
mixing with transmission fluid and maybe oil.  If this sounds about 
right or if you think that it could be something entirely different 
let me know.  I am about to do a full service on it.  Change spark 
plugs, oil, all filters, and service the transmission because it hit 
60,000 miles about 300 miles ago.

Thanks for all the support!

For the reverse lights check the Reverse switch located ont he 
drivers side of the trany.  The rubber boot can trap water inside 
and cause it to rust out.  

Regarding the interior lights, is it just the door lights that 
aren't working or are the dome lights inop as well?  Verify that the 
wires on your door switches didn't get kicked off.  If not, start 
with the interior lighting wiring diagram is the workshop manual and 
trace the circuit out to find the fault.  FYI - there is a fuse for 
the door light.

Mike a bad control pressure regulator will cause the exhaust to run 
excessively rich, destroy gass milage, and misfire according to John 
Hervey's web site.  I'm getting ready to take mine apart and see if 
I can fix it.

My CO2 screw was equally screwed when I finally took it apart.  I 
had to disassemble the mixture unit, remove the rocker, dremel off 
the wide disc at the bottom of the screw inorder to get a pair of 
pliers on it to remove the screw from the arm.  Be careful not to 
twist out the treaded seat that is pressed into the rocker arm, use 
lots of penetrate.  I found that despite the type of bosch fuel 
mixture unit you pull from a junkyard car, that internal screw is 
the same.  I pulled one off of a Mercedes and another off of a 
Volkswagon.  I have a spare if you need it.
