  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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

    I forgot to mention I have a 1986 Lotus Esprit turbo

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. I have a 1986 Lotus esprit that has it's oil level light constantly on. I am told that this is controlled by a sensor connected to the dipstick. My dipstick must have been relaxed because it has no such wire. Are there any sources for the correct dipstick

  7. I am still getting to know my 1986 Esprit turbo. My speedometer has been jumping around and when I looked under the car I noticed the right angle drive had backed out of the transmission. I reinserted it saw the clip on the side of the transmission to retain it but it almost immediately backed out again. Is there a correct way to insert this so that it stays in place
