[DML] Re: Coolant Coming Out

Sounds like either your cap is not on firmly or needs to be replaced.
Pressure is escaping from your coolant bottle causing your anti-freeze
to come out of the overflow tube.  
I had the same problem with my "D" and ordered a cap from DMC Houston
and corrected the problem.  It was a quick $5 fix. 

For your question before this--I believe the DeLorean holds around 2.9
gallons of coolant, but make sure you mix distilled water (not tap)
and coolant 50/50.  Your owners manual, if you have one, will mention
