  2. I have a very nice 1986 Lotus Esprit turbo on e bay. This car is in very good mechanical and cosmetic condition. The reserve is only $13100. I would like to see the car go to someone on the group. I have full maintenance records. The car is very original with no accidents. It will be on E bay USA until Sunday Art
  3. Does anyone know where I can track down a rear bumper for my 1986 turbo Esprit Thanks Art Sesso
  4. My Esprit is fuel injected Art
  5. My 1986 Esprit turbo has been running fine. Recently on cold starts the engine races to 3000RPM for about 5 minutes then returns to about 900RPM. The weather has not been very cold and the car is kept in a non heated garage. Is this normal, it seems excessive and it did not do this during the summer months Art
  6. I have located a Ford dipstick on EBay which appears to look just like the diagram posted. The length of that dipstick is 36mm. Is that correct for the Lotus? Art
  7. This is very helpful. Thanks to everyone for the information. I will get back on the trail of trying to track one down Art
  8. No lock nut or grub screw, can't see any sign of glue but I guess it is possible Art
  9. This is probably another dumb question from a new owner, but I need to change my shifter leather gaiter since it is torn. My problem is I cannot get the shifter knob off. I thought it would just unscrew but it will not budge. Is there a trick to removing it, I don't want to damage anything by using too much force Art I forgot to mention I have a 1986 Lotus Esprit turbo Art
  10. I was contacted by someone who stated he had the dipstick, he sent his name and address and I transferd the money he requested. It looks now like I was scammed ! I guess I am still in the market for the dipstick Art
  11. The light is located in the center of the instrument panel towards the bottom Art
  12. Lotus declared the part obsolete in 2007 and dropped it but I think I may have found one from someone on the site Art
  13. The current dipstick looks like an original Esprit but not the correct one for an 86. I have attached the picture from the 86 manual
  14. I have the connection point on the harness but I would like to return the car to it's original working condition Art
  15. This is a special dipstick that has a wire running from the top of the stick to the wiring harness. It apparently was a one year option 1986. It is pictured in the owners manual for this year and it described how to disconnect the device to remove the dipstick. My original dipstick must have been replaced and now the dipstick level light is always on even though the oil pressure gauge reads normal Art
