RE: [DML] Re: Delorean Owner



 The K jet system first appeared in the Porsche 2.4 T Euro in 1973 along
with a carbureted system. There were 1000's brought over to the US from 73
thru 88 and ended with the 911 3.3 Turbo. 
The more common US car other than the Porsche was the Volvo 260 & 760 as
stated earlier. Most of the surviving Volvos are in the lower states because
of the salt used on the roads in the north were not valued enough to store
them for the winter as we do our cars.
Most of the shops that work on Porsche and German cars that us the fuel
system are a familiar with the K system but as far as fixing it are most at
a loss as to know how it works. I work with shops all the time on fuel
systems all over the US as a sideline because I can repair and rebuild
complete CIS K Jetronics fuel systems. Shops can normally diagnose the
problem but they have no parts to Fix the problem and that is where I come
in. I have all the parts and bits and some even send me the complete system
to check out and overhaul. Then after they get it back I help them with the
tuning to get it running smooth and with no hot start problems or ruff Idle.
It is a good system if you really understand how makes it works.
I sit back and see all the post about CIS good and bad but believe me there
are 1000's still out there running around. 
I look at it this way. You go to a doctor for general diagnosis and help but
they will call a specialist for help and that is where I come in just to
raise my flag a little. They have no parts to fix anything. 
I repair and rebuild about 2 to 3 complete fuel systems a month for all CIS
and have been doing it about 10 years.

If you widen to the whole family of Jetronic you inlcude many more. The K is
a subset of the Jetronic with Lambda. As things go it is a fairly simple
system. It has very few adjustments and once properly running requires clean
fuel. As with just about any fuel system it does not store well. Especially
with today's fuels. I would estimate that a majority of problems on a
regularly used system are more related to electrical problems like the RPM
relay, a bad fuel pump and melting out the #7 fuse. The other large group of
problems is related to the fuel pick-up system in the tank and that is
unique to Deloreans. Fortunately all of the problems are well documented and
there are plenty of parts available. The majority of the work is to undo
previous incompetent work and clean the system.
