RE: [DML] Catalytic converter



My cat came apart and terminally clogged the muffler.  It can happen and
will result in low power.  It was not very noticeable at idle but on
acceleration there was a loud his and low power.  In my case it was
pretty obvious what had gone wrong. 


If your car does not idle well, then its probably fuel or ignition.
Check for good spark, good spray patterns from the injectors, even
volume from the injectors, and for vacuum leaks.

Subject: [DML] Catalytic converter




I'm Jon and new to the list. I recently purchased my first delorean,
it's a 1982 with fuel door. My question is the engine runs real bad when
cold, and runs a bit better when warm. I am familiar with Bosch early
fuel injection as I have restored my far share of VDubs. The question I
have is do the catalytic converters in the DMC 12 have a history of
colapsing or cloging? It seems to me the engine is being very sluggish.
and not very responsive to engine throtle. Could this be due to the
converter or does anyone have another answer like injectors, timing,
etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


By the way I live in Texas
