Re: [DML] Re: General lack of engine power. what's going on?

I had a similar issue after I got my DeLorean.  I just thought  
DeLoreans had really pathetic performance (I knew they weren't  
exactly the fastest things out there); in reality, the transmission  
had been rebuilt by someone who didn't know DeLoreans, and the torque  
converter from a different car had bee put in.  The net result was  
that although the car shifted gears properly, it acted like it was  
always in 3rd.  This made going up a hill from a stop or any kind of  
acceleration in traffic difficult at best.

Finally, the strain became too much, the transmission destroyed  
itself, and I had to get a new one at DeLorean Motor Center.  The car  
runs a lot better now, although most any other car on the road can  
out-accelerate it. :)

Admittedly, this was a pretty unique case.
