Drove the DeLorean to work the other day and when I got there, I smelled a faint melting rubber smell. Thought it might be a belt, so I quick checked the belts and none were shiny or hot from slipping. Thought I'd check it out better after work when I got home. On my way home about 10 minutes into the drive, accelerating through fourth gear, it happened.... lost power and felt just like a spark plug miss. Pulled over, and couldn't see any wires loose or melted. Still smelled the rubber smell too. Very faintly. Got it home, but something definitely isn't right.
I had similar symptoms happen to me in my Geo, it was a wire melted and shorting on the exhaust manifold. (Rubber smell, engine miss.) But checking under the hood, the wires in the D run on top, and nowhere near the exhaust.
So, I plan on checking the wires and vac hoses as they are a giant snarl and not routed very well on my car. But is there any DeLorean-specific problem this might be?
