[DML] Re: Question for owners with issues.



While troubleshooting any emission issue with the DeLorean engine I 
think it would be useful to remember that a properly tuned mechanically 
sound DeLorean engine is very clean burning, even by today's standards.

Therefore, in diagnosis, rather than focusing on clean burn science, 
even though such information can be extremely helpful in the diagnosis, 
I would concentrate on specs. If the engine is failing emission testing 
something is out of spec - that's it - period. Finding the failing spec 
adjustment or failing component is a matter of testing with the proper 
equipment in the proper sequence.

If the engine or it's operating systems have been modified in any way - 
then the application of clean burn science may be essential to 
achieving a clean burning engine. A modified engine or operating system 
is by any definition out of spec.

So, to me, solving the emission issue is the task of finding what is 
out of spec, which can be, without the proper tools and applying the 
proper technique, extremely difficult and frustrating. And, as we have 
seen, guessing often results in numerous parts replacements 
and "adjustments" with limited results. If the engine is in fact out of 
spec, one may be able to apply clean burn science to compensate - but 
then - one must still know what is out of spec.
