[DML] DeLorean coolant leaks


Of the three cars that had leaks, One was the broken
radiator that we already discussed.  The plastic tank
had cracked.

The second car happens to be a top quality, well
maintained driver.  I believe the owner has had most
of the work done professionally.  However, this was
probably the first time in a long time that the car
spent the night outside with such low temperatures. 
It had not leaked previously.

And, the third car was mine.  It had a few small drops
under it from a single loose clamp on one of the large
hoses.  It was the first time 6068 had spent a cold
night outside the garage since the engine transplant
last year.  Not to mention, I beat the piss out of it
at the drag strip the night before.  I expected to
break a lot more on the car, so I was perfectly happy
with the three problems I encountered as a result of
my evening at the track.  Those are the loose clamp, a
broken connector on the Crank position sensor (caused
me to stall before the Finnish line on all of my
runs), and having the AC vent fly out of the dashboard
and hit me when I took off from the starting line.

With that broken connector on the CPS, I was both the
fastest and slowest DeLorean at the track that night. 

So, none of the cars were running on original hoses
and clamps...  just one original radiator!
