    It sounds a it counterintuitive but I've seen clouds of white smoke from the exhaust when the cat or muffler is full of raw gasoline. Which would be symptomatic of other fuel system problems. Shorted...

    Lots of them have hooks that very easily hook around the lower control arms (and bend them) but won't fit through tow hooks.

    I've always been pretty amazed at what you can find at Ace Hardware. Emergency use only, it's by far the most expensive way to buy nuts and bolts.

    You can chase down a snap-on truck but they never carry it on the truck. Special order.

    My non-DMC DD has a black headliner (completely black interior) and it's fine. I just think it's too claustrophobic in a DeLorean, and does not match the interior trim color. The DMC interior black...

    I've seen a few with black headliners. IMO it doesn't work in this car.

    It's really hard to get the cylinder out. It's held in by pin into a blind hole.

    There are two small dimples in the glass, when correctly lined up one will be about 1/8" to either side of the metal. In your photo it appears 1/4" to the left so the other one is probably behind the...

    I'm having a hard time seeing the alignment marks in the glass (not sure why) but it looks like it has moved. Is that the front mark way to the left? If so the rear mark is probably hidden.

    That's a taped glass. Pull it apart and re-glue it with the glass centered. Also, if it's an early car check to see if the rear carrier bracket is sprayed black. If not, it needs to be modified.

    I've seen bad gauges. Get one of those laser thermometers and measure the water temp coming out of the engine. Then calibrate your brain to the gauge or start changing parts

    They can also be squeaky. Having to periodically take your suspension apart and grease it is no fun.

    Replace it. There's a direct replacement unit available that fits modern lighter plugs much better. OR, wire in a separate one and hide it inside the glovebox or under the dash.

    My personal preference is poly bushings on the sway bar clamp and ends ONLY, not on the control arms (need to have some "give" there). My recommendation is the kit from Toby at DeLorean Northwest.

    I don't think I've ever broken one off in the hole, but we've seen some sticky ones. An impact can help but try a couple of short hits in either direction, not just unscrewing it. If the impact has a...

    You can get a high quality thinwall socket on the axle flange bolts. Not an impact, and not some crummy Harbor Freight specials.

    Definitely a home-brew turbo set up. I've seen a few, this one looks pretty unique.
