    Critters seem to be able to get into parked cars even with the doors closed. They take the materiel from the seats and make a nest in the heater box and they chew up the wiring in the fuse box. They...

    Did the oil level rise? Is there any coolant in the oil? I misunderstood, I thought you had said there was some coolant on top of the pistons. I guess you could pressurize the cooling system if you...

    Could be a broken spring in the detent or the shifting mechanism is slightly out of adjustment or you just were not fully into 2nd gear and it popped out. Make sure you have enough oil in the trans....

    If the coolant was not leaking into the oil before you took the heads off AND you did NOT move the pistons with the heads off you are probably OK.

    Go to leatherique.com. Read all of the information and then order a bottle of Rejuvinator. Remember the only leather is the seating surfaces (top of the bottom and front of the back) the steering...

    This is the best advice. Generally speaking, your regular insurance doesn't cover anything you do with your car when you get paid for using it. You can also check with your insurance broker....

    Have the battery recharged and tested then start checking all of the "big" connections between the battery and the alternator.

    This is similar to the argument to jack the car up and take the weight off of the suspension and tires. It doesn't seem to matter except in the case of the tires you can get flatspots. After a little...

    Typically if you rent your car out for hire your ordinary insurance won't cover you. Especially if you have classic or collector insurance.

    A bigger (wider) tire spreads the weight out over a larger area so the pressure per square inch is lower so while you have more surface area in contact with the road, you have a lighter pressure....

    Typically the event coordinator provides insurance and transportation. If it is just a static display I get $500 per day. I try to get invited and if there is any video I ask for a copy. If you have...

    Go to N:10:04 Clutch Test Step 3-Air Gap. My guess is the gap needs to be adjusted.

    You are right and wrong. The weight distribution is the source of the problem. Lotus did the best they could do with the technology and engineering available at the time. They also had to meet the...

    You can put in a new board but if you are really careful with the old one, with a bit if Scotch-Brite and some patience, you can fix up your old one. Puling the binnacle and the gauge cluster isn't...

    I am going to wait till Spring too. My concerns about changing tire sizes is that the Delorean was very well designed so that the front tires are supposed to break loose BEFORE the rear tires. The...

    It is probably part # 101073 Flywheel Protection Plate. Refer to 4-1-1. It is not an essential part and can be removed. In fact, if you ever remove the transmission, it is so difficult to remove that...

    Most of the time the tach is not the problem, it is a connection to it. There is a flexible printed circuit board inside the binnacle that connects all of the instruments and is often the source of...

    If you heard a clattering it might be a good idea to check your valve clearances especially if you have over 30,000 miles on the car and you don't know if or when it was ever done. Reset the Lambda...

    While it is possible for the transmission fluid to leak into the final drive, it is not a common failure especially if the transmission was never disassembled. If it was, then it is more likely. Make...

    While it can't hurt to check the pressures, if they are way off the motor wouldn't run. More important to check the injectors for opening and closing pressures and spray pattern. BTW, sticking an O2...

    It appears in Knut's chronology but it only says "Dealer 45102". If that is a dealer, and they are listed by zip code, it is Amelia, Ohio but there is no dealer in the Dealer List with that number.
