[DML] Re: Delorean Owner

Martin claims that K-Jet is still common/familiar in Europe, but in the United States it is indeed a rarity. 

In this country K-Jet was extremely uncommon even when new. There has not been a K-Jetted car sold new since 1986. Chances of finding a local third party mechanic familiar with it are going to be small.

Peruse the Volvo newsgroups -- K-Jetted owners have trouble finding support even within their own community.

DeLorean owners' do seem to do a good job of supporting each other.

I can tell you that I've tried this in the DC area, and at the time (6 years ago) was laughed out of the door each time.  The mechanics who knew the K-Jetronic as it applied to Volvo automobiles are long gone, or so far out of practice by this time that they're useless.  As I recall, only the 260 and 760 series Volvos (and not all of them) came with an engine that resembled the PRV we have.
