[DML] Re: 1st Gear Trouble

I agree here, and unfortunately speak from personal experience: my
linkage bolt broke! >_< (Thankfully this was on a nice country road,
with no other cars involved. So I coasted slowly to a stop.)I have
since replaced it with a good, heavy-duty aftermarket one. Also, one
of my flaws is I tend to "ride the clutch" a lot in heavy traffic
where there's not a full and complete stop, instead of shifting into
neutral and just rolling around. So sometimes I run a little low on
DOT4 fluid. But that's only in rare cases. One mechanic actually
installed my linkage crookedly and I couldn't even shift out of
reverse. Having learned my lesson with much humility, I now stick with
the advice of the kind DeLorean gurus around my neighborhood and on
the net. :)
