    Get the tires balanced, and also check for out-of-round by lifting each tire slightly off the ground and spinning it. Also look for bends in the wheel rim edge. Out of round is pretty common on cheap...

    Went for the final drive of the season, replaced a bad accumulator, did an oil change for the first time in 3 years. Parked for the winter now.

    I gotta drive it more. . .

    The switches are electrically very different. The hazard is on/off, the headlight is parking light/headlight/off. They are not interchangeable.

    I suspect that if you asked the same guys if they'd work on an aftermarket, home-engineered/installed, undocumented EFI system, they would also have turned you away. Whether or not it was a DeLorean.

    You probably need to have some load on the engine, lower vacuum. Hard to do at idle with a manual trans. It would be something relatively big, i.e. PCV hoses, throttle body.

    How does the car run?...

    Vacuum leak. You don't hear it until the engine slows down. Long shot but I've seen it.

    That's exactly the test. Take the cap off (cold), start the engine, and look inside the bottle where the bleed hose attaches. You should be able to see water spraying out of the hose. With some...

    Don't use an "add-a-Fuse". The fuse block is already pretty marginal. Find a source and solder-tap or lug it.

    #1 answer - Never let it get salted.

    Water alone isn't a big deal as long as you allow it to dry relatively quickly. In other words, don't drive from the rain into a tight/sealed garage and leave...
  15. [Electrical] Inertia switch failure, tripping thermal relay of door lock electrical?

    You could just disconnect the module. Locks will still work manually. It's likely that you have a bad solenoid or two in the doors, that can cause similar issues.

    The inertia switch may not be...

    Unplug the switch and the locks should act normally. But the fuel pump will be disabled (car won't run) unless someone has bypassed it somewhere else.

    You can temporarily bypass the inertia...

    Yes that is how it is supposed to work. It unlocks the doors in an accident so you can get out of the car.

    That's a really good picture of what to look for when the exhaust starts getting noisy. You'll see black soot marks like this on the bad ones, and you'll often see the gasket starting to fall out,...

    I asked about tires because some tires (especially the older blockier treads, and Goodyears) tend to get noisy with age. But that wouldn't change with acceleration/deceleration, only road speed.
