RE: [DML] Re: Delorean Owner

Hi Guys 


Over here in the UK the K Jetronic according to Wikipedia was used on the
following cars 


Porsche <> , Volkswagen
<> , Audi
<> , BMW <>
, Mercedes-Benz <> , Rolls-Royce
<> , Bentley
<> , Lotus
<> , Ferrari
<> , Peugeot
<> , Renault
<> , Volvo
<> , Saab
<> , DeLorean
<>  and Ford
<>  automobiles. The final car to use
K-Jetronic was the 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 


Mainly European manufacturers, but I thought you would have Mercs  and
Porsches over there and may be a couple of BMW's. 


K Jetronic is pretty basic injection theory, it explains it in the workshop
manual pretty well

I know you've been around a long time, but I have to ask if you've ever
tried doing what you're recommending here. 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.
