RE: [DML] Re: Delorean fuel system



About 3 weeks ago a customer took his 911 Porsche to a Porsche shop for a
starting problem. After $850.00 dollars of throwing parts at it they
couldn't diagnose the problem or fix and they told the man he may need
another Fuel distributor. Quoted him $1600.00 dollars more. 
They had no parts, the customer called me and after a discussion he had what
we called a Hot Start problem. I sent him an O ring for the primary Pressure
regulator and he called back in about 10 days and said the car hadn't ran
that good in 10 years. 
I told him not to blame the shop but they are not experts on CIS fuel system
any more. That is why a GP doctor sends customers to a specialist.

One option would be to try a Volvo dealer. The mechanics used to work on
Volvos that had K-Jet and some of the older techs will remember how and have
the tools. While it is true that at the time Deloreans had mechanical fuel
injection and most other cars did not, many imported cars did and so did
some Corvettes. Even Jetronics did not last all that much longer, eventually
morphing into Motronics which is a more electronically controlled engine
system. Your point is well taken, as technology is obsoleted it becomes
harder and harder to maintain and service it. That is true in all cases. How
many people are left in the world that can adjust the doors on a Delorean
and are experienced at it and can do it well?
