This is not meant to be a demonstration of art of Web Creation, in most cases it will be completely text.
We are not attempting to duplicate the DeLorean Factory Manuals. Updated versions of the Factory Parts & Service Procedure manuals are available from all the vendors. In many cases these writeups will reference, chapter and verse, processes in the manual. The writeups only elaborate or clarify some of the ambiguities or inaccuracies of the original books, based on people's first-hand experience. If you are attempting any maintenance on your car, I'd strongly recommend that you buy the Parts Manual and the Technical Manual. They will be the best investment you make in the care of the car. It's really hard to drag your computer underneath the car, and by the time you have printed it all out you'll wish you bought it in the first place.
The usual caveats apply, if you do something explained here and melt down your DeLorean, don't come crying to us. These pages, and the DeLorean manuals, will NOT make a mechanic out of someone with no mechanical aptitude. The legal fine print.
Items from the DML are posted here either in original form, or with minor editing to string together several questions and answers to make it more readable. If possible, the date or message number of the original posting is provided in case you want to go back and see the original in the archives. Anything found on the web is a link to the original page. This should save us from any copyright issues. Please notify me if any of the links go away. If I've inadvertently posted anything here without proper credit, please let us know.
If you would like to contribute original articles, please submit, in any format, with photos reduced to appropriate filesize (20-30 kB per shot) to webowner(AT)dmcnews.com. There is a template at the bottom of the table of contents above if you would like to use the established format and create in HTML. You may also submit compilations of text from the DML, but all original text, signature lines and author identities must remain intact.
