    That's an interesting suggestion, you might be right. I had the bleeder above the axle pointed pretty much horizontal but it was below the slave. I'll try to re-bleed with the hose unclipped and...

    To anyone reading this in the future, I did hot glue my decel springs closed and it did NOT fix my creeping up idle when hot. So I think it's safe to say if your springs look OK and they do not...

    Personally I wouldn't drive the car too far until you get all this sorted out. You don't want to foul up everything, do you? Just asking for trouble.

    Try the tests I told you about regarding the idle microswitch. Note that the microswitch has nothing to do with lambda but could be part of your high idle problem.

    The lambda relay and fuse 7...

    Thanks for the good tips guys. I ordered this cig lighter display so I can check my voltage while driving. Another owner pointed it out to me and confirmed it works in his DeLorean. Should have...

    Yes, the connector is in the driver's side rear wheel well.

    Regarding the dwell, if it reads 0 on your meter (no activity) it sounds like you are not connecting the dwell up correctly, or there...

    [Electrical] Dropping voltage as accessories are added

    Got a bit of a power problem that seems like it's been getting worse. On a cold start, with no accessories on, the volt meter will read a bit above 13V for a few minutes until the car warms up and...

    Hey everyone, I think I have some good news.

    I pulled my distributor out AGAIN this morning and reinstalled my old impulse coil and put a new "fly tach lead" on - this is the wire that comes off...

    Hey guys, since we are talking about clutch bleeding, here's one for you. I installed the DPI remote clutch bleeder which is a DOT hose that screws into the clutch slave and then runs down the...

    Thanks Mark! Great website... When you order the length, is that the shank only, or does it include the cap (so overall length is measured)?

    Thanks for the details. I don't need a roofbox but always trying to learn more for when that fateful day may finally come. I already have a new windshield and it was installed with the roof...

    Would you please elaborate on the issues encountered when doing this job without removing the windshield? Does it compromise the installation in any way or make it even more difficult to do? Sounds...

    I think Mike at DMCMW posted some pictures of a roof box replacement on Facebook a while back. The labor for the job was like two full days for two techs working on it. It doesn't sound like a fun...

    Thanks Dave, I appreciate that. I actually have a spare idle ECU that I borrowed from someone else but I don't know that it has been confirmed that it works perfectly either! I think the chances of...

    Another update -

    1) I disconnected the grounds from the RPM relay, the idle speed microswitch, and the idle ECU and ran temporary grounds joined at the battery. I then started the car and it...

    Rich,

    Thanks for thinking about me! I did perform a smoke test with both a cold engine and a hot engine and looked specifically for that type of leak. Negative. My next two tests are:

    Thanks David. The more I think about it, I think there are only a few possibilities remaining. As you said, this is a mechanical system and there are only a few ways this problem can occur. I...

    I have performed more tests in an attempt to rule out particular components related to the idle speed, particularly the thermistor and the idle speed motor. I believe I have ruled out...
