[DML] Re: How long have you been stuck in a traffic jam?



I lived in downtown Charlotte (translation, the HUMID South) for years 
with my DeLorean, and would get stuck in traffic regularly for an hour 
plus. My car always ran very cool because had a new radiator with 
brass side rails, fanzilla, new silicon coolant hoses, new water pump, 
continuous bleeder, stainless coolant bottle, etc. If your electric 
and cooling systems are up to date you should be fine. A properly 
serviced and updated DeLorean actually runs cooler than most cars. 
Honestly I worried more about frying my clutch out prematurely in stop 
and go traffic than anything. If you don't have the continuous bleeder 
for your DeLorean, that's the first step I'd take if you are concerned 
about overheating.
