    There are many reasons the fans don't run when they should. A little trouble-shooting and visual inspection is in order. Inspect the fuseblock for signs of overheating. Inspect the fan fail relay or...

    Somehow, someway, more air is getting past the throttle plates. It could be leaks, it could be the decel valves not closed all the way, maybe the throttle plates have been deformed or bent, or the...

    The only way you should adjust the throttle stop adjustment is with the throttle body out of the car so you can see the plates and make sure the stop screw is stopping the arm BEFORE the plates are...

    I would suspect the quadrant link needs to be adjusted to get the throttle plates closed all the way. When the water pump was done the throttle spool was touched and that can change things enough to...

    When you are checking the accumulator you must remove the hose from it and block it off. Otherwise fuel returning to the tank from the PPR will come out. If fuel comes out of the accumulator with the...

    Towing with a rope should be a last resort. You can't stop without having it hit the tow vehicle and you can't tow downhill. The only way to do it is if the brakes work and someone steers the car....

    The washers can be annealed but it is best to replace them. Get the correct size washers. If unsure just order them where you got the lines. They can be sanded with fine sandpaper if there are any...

    You can experiment with them and try blocking them shut but I don't think you will get much braking force in an automatic.

    When I go to car shows and talk to people who only know about the Delorean in general terms, the majority of them conflate DMC with DMCH. DMCH, whether they admit it or not, present themselves as the...

    The best advice is to try to stay with R-12 as long as you can. The system was designed for it and any other refrigerant is not going to have the cooling capacity of -12. If you can't get -12 the...

    If you do decide to replace the motorized antennae, make sure you do not need the reversing relay. Most newer replacements have it built in internally so you have to remove the one behind the...

    Check the round plastic dust cover, make sure the hole is still square and drives the inner square cable inside the spindle. The other possibility is the angle drive is bad.
