DIE MOLD DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By admin No comments

Went shopping today, and after 3 auto stores, finally found one that sells an A/C fumigation type bottle/device. Spent 3 hours on my back under the passenger foot well with a tiny mirror and a garden hose cut and duct taped to the shopvac sucking out gunk from the evaporator. Lots of grass. No idea […]

Inspection done, but brake issues arise (queue scary music)

By admin No comments

Had the car inspected today, and it passed without a problem. The inspector did say that my one brake pad looked low, and I should get it changed ASAP. So, on the ride home I start to hear this metal scraping sound. Perfect. Brake gone, rotor grinding. Pull it in the garage, pop off the […]

What a funky smell, did something DIE in my car?!?!?!

By admin No comments

After 2 days of running the car without an issue, on trips to and from work, about a hour and a half a day, I have hit a roadblock. The air condtioning smells like somebody is frying ass in my vents. It is awful. I am going to assume that the cold air and water […]

Air Conditioning is now blowing…cold…

I decided to order a Freeze-12 kit from eBay, as it seems to be a good inexpensive R-12 substitute. Locally shops wanted anywhere from $75-100 per pound. As I had no idea how much the car needed, and most wanted $40 to even look at it, I decided to spend the money on the kit. […]

Pittsburg Tech Session A SUCCESS!

By admin No comments

So, made it back today from the Pittsburg Tech session that took place yesterday. It was great. I met many new owners, all of whom were very friendly, and accomplished a lot with the car. The car made the 4 hour trip each way without a hiccup, but it sure was hot on the way […]

More repairs…struts (the imporant part in entering the car)

By admin No comments

Today we worked on replacing the door and bonnet struts. I expected this to be a semi difficult job with aligning and removing bolts to get the struts on and off, but I was completely wrong. These struts are not like the louver struts that are bolted on, they just pop on and are held […]

Fan fail install

By admin No comments

With the DeLorean, one of the most well known problems is the poor fan electrical setup, causing the fans to malfunction. I can attest to this, as I have just experienced overheating due to a broken fan fail relay. The fan fail 2×2 from Special T is my new life saver. Install instructions: Simply remove […]

Air bleeder install

How to install the air bleeder: Fairly simple, take a wrench and remove the valve next to the throttle, and replace with your new sized valve. Place hose on the end and secure with metallic hose clamp. Cut hose near coolant bottle and insert T section. Clamp all hoses onto the T bar and you […]
