    Thick green liquid leaking

    Looks like coolant to me. Not thick looking, more like water, and there's no other green liquid in the car. Need to make sure about the color.

    Fans not switching off on SV

    The fans aren't suppose to run with the engine off, no matter how hot. As to the original question, I have no idea.

    Well now I don't need to go driving today. Next best thing.

    FS: 1997.5 Diablo Roadster

    Darn online calculators. Thanks for catching, that is correct.
  5. 1997 1/2 Lamborghini Diablo finished in Blue Chario. 28,300KM. (14,700) miles. Current owner for 12 years. Mechanically, the car is in excellent condition. Engine runs strong. Car has been maintained by owner including regular fluid changes. The clutch is original, with plenty of bite. Clutch life on Diablo's is greatly dependent on owner care. AC blows cold. Cosmetically the interior is in excellent condition. The paint is original and in very good condition, but the front spoiler could use a touch up with chip repair kit, or a respray. Other minor imperfections consistent with use. The car has been kept in stock condition, except for a Quick Silver exhaust system with sport cats, so the V12 can breath as it should. In 2013 A left bank computer failure lead to the car being sent to Evans Automotive in Ohio. The computer was replaced, and all engine systems were confirmed good, however a CEL light is perpetually on. There are no codes, and nothing is wrong with engine performance, but Evans was not able to get the light to extinguish. The light is easily obscured. I have all maintenance records, but be advised, they are MY records. I work and maintain this car myself. Also have the ticket from the Evan's work. Clean CarFax. More pictures upon request. Price: $180,000

    Wouldn't make sense to be the runners. If the felt was worn, that's less material to drag on, unless it was cocked in there, but unlikely both sides. How bout just some silicon spray?

    inspecting the car

    1. Fuel gauge, good luck, both of my cars so it, sometimes it drops to zero, and then slowly builds it's way back to the correct reading. There's not an easy fix. Word is, it's NOT the sender. 2. Changing the thermostat is no different than changing on other cars, it's been a while, but basically remove the housing and lift the old one out, new one in. Also suspect your tank cap seal, both fans working? Using a laser temp gun, shoot the tank or therm housing, and compare against your gauge to see if it really is as hot as it reads. 4. Don't be in a hurry to replace bushings etc. I've done two 45 year old Pantera's, and while the bushings looked cracked around the rims, the inside was still supple. Suspension work is a pain for DIYer's.

    Thanks Jeff, I understand and will look at those two things.

    I was thinking fuel pressure too which I don't think the computer could sense, and thus no CEL. Jeff, the idle speed is 900 RPM when warmed up. It does not idle up to the typical 1500 RPM or so when cold, You have to keep giving it gas which would point to the Carter motor? Thanks for the replys.

    The 98 SV will start, but then die repeatedly. When coming to a stop, the RPM's seem to drop suddenly, and the engine dies. It will always start right back up, but then want to stall again unless you get moving. After warm up the condition seems to improve with less stalling, but is still intermittently present. Have checked for vacuum leaks, and considering items like Carter motor, and throttle position sensor it seems there would be an associated CEL, but there are none, and the engine runs fine once underway. What else to check?

    Question charging older Diablo AC system.

    yeah, that was me.

    Question charging older Diablo AC system.

    If you go by the book, you're suppose to evacuate the system, find out how much freon by weight the system holds, then weigh, and put in the exact amount. Alternatively, you can use any number of those trigger guns with gauges that screw on the freon cans, they're all over the place. You attach it to the low side of the AC system which should be located above the driver side rear wheel, and wheel arch. (that's where it is on MY year 97), don't know if it's there on 91 models. You can access it by jacking the car up a few inches., reach in there and snap it on the fitting which has a screw cap on it. The unit I use has a gauge on it and when it measures in the blue area then the system is pretty much filled. I have to do this once a year. Woks good, it's fast and safe. On yea, start the car and run the AC on full cold, pull the trigger, the can will get super cold and frost over. Obviously this will only work if the system is otherwise good, and just leaks freon.

    Diablo Shocks

    $15-20K would be crazy. As these cars are becoming more and more of an investment vehicle, how are you going to get your money back? Whether that little light is flashing or not has nothing to do with the value of the car, or as I said, how it drives.
