Re: [DML] Re: How well do your DeLoreans start?


My DeLorean will start on the first try every time regardless of the 
temperature of the engine and the weather. It always takes less than a 
second to start the engine. Regardless if it was sitting for one minute or 
three months. Once it starts it never dies. I never touch the gas when 
starting. When it's cool outside and the engine is cold it will hunt at idle 
for a moment but I don't really know how long because I never let it idle 
when cold. The best for the engine is to start driving as soon as the engine 
is running and I do that every time. The colder the weather and engine the 
more apparent the hunting is.
It didn't run like this when I got it. I replaced a lot of parts including 
all the relays, o-rings in the engine, ALL vacuum lines, installed platinum 
tipped spark plugs (as per the owners manual), etc.
The car runs perfectly ever since I did that and I believe this is what 
every DeLorean should start and run like.
