[DML] And for my NEXT problem... :)



Hey all, been a while. I recently had a complete Valeo clutch kit 
installed on my DeLorean, plus a 12~ something grade shift linkage 
pivot that will (supposedly) never break like my old one did. She 
ran great for about 3 weeks. Then! Suddenly! *dramatic music here* 
The DeLorean started to threaten to stall on me. Now bear in mind 
that I've spent almost $4K on restoring this thing. I told 
myself, "Ok, John. You had the main wiring harness redone. You have 
new spark plugs, plug wires, cap, & rotor. You have new vacuum 
hoses, fuel pump and accumulator." So I figured it couldn't possibly 
be the ignition system. It had to be the trans as that's the last 
thing that I got worked on. The strange thing is, the car only 
threatens to stall when you first accelerate from a dead stop. Say, 
at a stop sign or a light. As you go through the first 2 or 3 gears, 
the engine sputters and the car will jerk forward repeatedly. But, 
when I'm on the freeway or highway in 4-5th gears, doing 50-88mph 
(lol), she runs fine! Weird, huh? I've sent it in to the local 
repair shop and they should tell me what the new problem is. But 
have any of you ever experienced something like this? Such...horror? 
Oh the humanity! A non-running DeLorean! 
-proceeds to cry-
I'm just kidding
...okay, I'm good now. Hope your day is better than mine.
