    Tonite I bled it one more time the old fashioned way. Actually, old and new. I still had the bleeder wrapped with Teflon. I just cracked it and put a hose on the bleeder to a plastic cup. I started...

    I removed the bleeder and wrapped it generously with Teflon tape. Bled it again with the vacuum device. Still has bubbles, but less. Figured it was good and out everything away.

    So I went to...

    I missing something here. $2500 divided by 8 hours is $312 per hour. Are you saying a dealer charges this per tech? Or are you saying $156 per tech/hour. That sounds more realistic, but I’m behind...

    I would suppose the best time to buy one of these cars is in a few months when we get more into the recession. Itís hard to sell specialty cars in a recession. Prices should go down. If the...

    I have a lot of guys tell me how unreliable it is. When I ask how many they have worked on, the response is usually ďthis is the first one Iíve ever seenĒ. Almost everyone thinks itís made by AMC.

    What you describe here is acceptable. A lot of alternators are weak at idle. As long as it makes over 12.5, you’re fine. (You won’t be discharging your battery. It might take longer for it to get the...

    I would think you still have air in the line. One thing I would do if I had the remote bleeder is have it higher than the slave while you bleed it. You want the air to go up and out. After youíre...

    Yea, I was thinking maybe remove it and wrap it with Teflon tape. What they should have is miniature ball valves.

    Edit, just found this.

    So I got a mityvac and bled it. The biggest issue is the stupid bleeder. Iíve never understood the design where when you open the bleeder, it leaks air through the threads. The vacuum would suck air...

    I changed the oil about a year ago. (Good quality synthetic) I will check it again, but it doesn’t seem to leak. My fluid is full and the hose is good. I’ve always heard that hydraulics get worse...

    The video is good. First thing I noticed was my shift linkage is a gob of grease and dirt. I’m wondering if my shifter is not coming up the whole way sometimes because of junk in the way. Also noted...

    So I lifted the car and tour apart the console. The fore and aft tube(s) has some play in the ends, but the mechanism for moving it seems good. That play would only force me to move the shifter...

    It just did it this morning again. Would not go into reverse, but would go in first without too much trouble. I guess I need to break out the manual. This sucks because I have...

    I guess I need to inspect my roof box. Ignorance was bliss.

    Thatís what I was thinking. If you have full coverage, they have to pay. They will go after the third party insurance. They probably wonít have issue because insurance companies have multiple claims...

    That looks like quite a car show. I take it, you had the only Delorean? Good luck on the cooling system. Iím too lazy to look back, but didnít you replace the water pump a year or so ago?
