    Picked up a 12 AWG wire from the parts store and moved the fuel pump/inertia switch ground wire to the shifter mounting bolt. My voltage gauge reading is a little more accurate now. :thumbup:

    I would suspect the thermostat is closed shut preventing the water from passing through the pump. They're designed to open when the water is hot enough.

    Just to follow up for any future readers: The ground cable to the battery was barely hanging on. Apparently it had worked itself loose over time. I went ahead and replaced the 7 year old battery and...

    I agree. I have Toby's cooling fan switch where you can dial in the fans so that they kick on at a specific spot on the temperature gauge, but the gauge is never consistent. There are times when the...

    I pulled fuse #5, which is the fuse for the dash instruments, while the motor was running and it reacted EXACTLY like it did when I lost my tach signal the other day. I revved the engine and it...

    Thanks Dave. When you say ignition coil primary, do you mean something along the positive circuit is failing, or is the coil failing?

    This issue used to occur every once in a blue moon after I'd go out and start the car if it's been sitting in the sun for a few hours. The issue would resolve itself just by simply restarting the...

    Random guy at a gas station asked, "What's the difference between JZD's DeLorean and a regular DeLorean? John's DeLorean weighs one kilo more." I chuckled.

    They swap out the old circuitry with modern internals. Definitely worth it.

    I discovered I had the same exact leak a month ago. I replaced the stock ISM with a used Volvo unit. The Volvo unit is smaller and runs on less current.

    The stock idle system is non-adjustable and will try to compensate for any loads on the system. You have something else going on if your idle runs that high.

    Sounds like I'm not alone! In my case, the engine starts and idles fine until I give it gas... then it sounds like it's starving for fuel like something's disconnected. Whatever signals the RPM gauge...

    The first time this happened (about a year and a half ago) I chalked it up as some bizarrely rare anomaly, but then it happened again today.

    Ahh, that's a bummer. I didn't know my car is now permanently subjected to STAR-only test stations. I thought it would eventually drop off the "gross polluter list" after consecutively passing. :(
