    I bought a lot of Josh's old parts from him when he upgraded to the LS engine, including his missing tooth wheel already welded to the pulley and a crank sensor bracket. You can probably fabricate...

    You take out the knee pads, and then Itís four small nuts to release the binnacle. This basically requires laying on your back under the dash. Before you lift it too much youíll have to disconnect...

    Thanks! I wouldn't have attemptedthisit without my friend (who is a professional classic car mechanic), and even he didn't want to go in here, and definitely didn't want to get far enough to replace...

    About a week ago my friend and I pulled the transmission, rebuilt it in the basement, and we re-installed it over the weekend. Here's what we found:

    The plastic tube that brings ATF from the...

    We found that piece, re-installed it, and it shifts just fine now. While I do think the solenoids were seizing, they were never going to work without the missing piece. At least I'm back on the...

    So it appears that when we put the transmission together we forgot an adaptor that goes from the governor to a helical gear inside the transmission. Which I read as the transmission thinking that...

    Update from a test drive:
    - Still only have first gear.
    - Removing fuse 13 gives me only third gear (or at least itís not first gear).

    Iíll see if I can find further information on testing the...

    After a night of soaking, the solenoid balls now move pretty easily by hand. When hooked up to the governor and powered in drive, they can no longer be turned ó exactly as expected. When I pull fuse...

    Huh; I was so focused on the operation that I didnít notice that the ball only spun freely when not energized. Since I canít spin the ball by hand when not energized, perhaps they are seized after...

    I used a PowerProbe to test the diagnostic port pins that go to the solenoids (ie: the pins used for the test light). In first, both pins are grounded as expected.

    I did not try pulling the...
  11. [Transmission Auto] Auto trans solenoids stuck; how to unstick?

    My friend and I fixed my DeLorean's automatic transmission's "transmission fluid leaking into the final drive" problem -- it seems the orange RTV used on the tube that carries ATF to the torque...

    There are already wires going through the bulkhead for the ECUs behind the driver's seat. Admittedly, since I did an EFI conversion those holes weren't used anymore, but you may be able to run your...

    Ah, I should have mentioned that -- these bulbs seems be more commonly used in reading lamps, so they only had them in cool and warm white. They had no colored versions at all. I used matching...

    [Electrical] LEDs for Special T Auto third brake light

    Not sure how many people have Hervey's third brake light (HCSL, CHMSL, whatever you want to call it), but I recently switched out my tail light bulbs with LEDs, and decided to do the ones in that as...

    I think the problem was just that people read it as wanting to change it for the sake of changing it out, not that you just want to replace worn parts with more sustainable ones. I wasn't sure which...

    I'm not either, but shops can be expensive and take a lot of time, and I'm impatient. Over the last 15+ of DeLorean ownership I've gone from "I'll let someone else do it" to "I can replace an...

    There are some options towards the back of the car, in so far as getting wires through the bulkhead without making any new holes:


    The hole where the O2 sensor comes in behind the driver's seat...

    I have a new manual for everyone -- the Renault MR215, which is the shop manual for the 4139-4141 automatic transmissions (the DeLorean uses the 4141). It's a useful supplement to Section G of the...

    No problem. My friend is confident he can reseal the transmission. He's not confident about replacing the clutch packs. Before he switched to classic cars he worked at a Mercedes dealership and...

    Oh yes, Section G is on my reading list.

    That shaft does sound like a good candidate for the leak. I'm guessing it's part 103581, which is of course out of stock at store.DeLorean.com . ...

    I was thinking the dye test for after it's all back together again, just to make sure we actually fixed it.

    I definitely agree that whatever is leaking is what needs to be fixed. I assumed it was...

    Just to be absolutely clear: I am only slipping when I'm low on fluid. I wind up not checking it for too long, it slips a little (or doesn't move or moves too slowly on it's own when putting it in...

    I probably have done some damage to the clutches, since the trans has slipped on me due to the incessant leaking. I do immediately put fluid in when that happens, but by then it's been running low...

    I was only planning on driving it into the ground if some of the expensive hard parts had been damaged. I'd rather save it.

    I drove 200+ miles in the last week, and checked the final drive again...
