    Check out the NorCal DeLorean group on Facebook. It's a pretty active community, and there are quite a few folks from the Sac area.

    Purely anecdotal, but my fans kick on around the 160F mark and generally run for a couple of minutes. 10 minutes seems like a long time at idle to cycle off?

    I replaced both of those lines because they were leaking. The one leading up to the transmission was a real PITA. The nut on the transmission side would not spin on its own, and there was no room to...

    I've had the dash out before (years ago), and swapped the lights for LEDs, minus the batt light. CA roads are not nice to our cars. The connector may have worked itself loose over time (or perhaps I...

    Last (hopefully) follow-up because this happened to me again. But I think I finally found the culprit!

    Yesterday I drove my car to work where it sat and heat soaked for quite a few hours. When I...

    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.

    Finally got around to installing the "A/C bump" feature that comes with Dave's McKeen's microprocessor idle ECU.

    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?

    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.

    [General] Strange, intermittent start-up behavior

    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.
