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



Any time a Delorean 'bucks' the way you describe, there's trouble in the 
tank.  Either the baffle has come loose from the floor of the tank or 
the pick-up hose is broken.  Or maybe you're out of fuel.  Go to the 
tank throught the spare tire well, remove the pump, and look into the 
hole.  You should see the problem.
