Oil Leak – Found

By admin No comments

After cleaning up the oil pan constantly and tightening the bolts thinking it was the seal leaking, I found out about another ‘DeLorean thing’ last week. A common place for oil to leak is from a faulty seal on the oil pressure light sensor. This is part # 102462 & 102461 in the manual. It is located on the left hand side of the engine above the oil pan and causes the leak on the drivers side to appear as it is coming from the pan seal. The parts to fix it cost less than $20 and I have them on order from DMC Houston. This will be a nice and messy job to do while it is cold out, changing the oil and fixing the leak. At least with it sitting for the winter I will be able to see if the leak comes back (after running it in the garage a bit of course to build up the pressure).
