    +1

    As for her (the DeLorean silly), the slave is readily accessible from underneath if you don't have a crossover pipe. It's just a bit confusing first time around

    I don't know, but your question raises an annoying matter for me. There is no company named "DeLorean" (at least, that has an automotive connection), but all the media coverage fuzzes this matter,...

    Photos would obviously be great, but I feel like there's backstory missing from this description. What is the original problem you were chasing - coolant in the oil? What's the full story on this...

    Ah, yes. I guess it's Friday. On many cars (certainly mine), this has been disconnected and replaced with just a plain lid. I don't know the history of this, but perhaps it's for this reason.

    Is there any play in the brake? If the parking brake cables aren't entirely tight, then it may bounce a bit when driving, and would cause this. The adjustment of course is at the calipers.

    What are you disagreeing with, exactly? Everyone? Me? Something specific? You'd think after giving help for decades, you'd learn to address specifics.

    Pretty much my thinking. No matter what parts/tools you carry, there will always be something you might not have. If I go any distance, I'll take
    some wrenches and whatnot, but it's more security...

    In PA if you have a classic or antique plate, then you are limited to 4 or 5 letter/number combination. I didn't want to do that. Fortunately, although all cars

    I did it, as a novice mechanic. My problem with David T's post is that it contained no specifics whatsoever nor any encouragement to even learn anything. Really, it was somewhat
    elitist.

    Yes, and in particular the rental I got from Autozone starts losing pressure around its neck at 10 PSI. So, I only tested up to that. It's been fine, nevertheless.

    To follow this up, the diodes were fine, but one was disconnected before I got the car - kicked or
    something. Passenger door indicator now works.
