Popee's esprit Posted December 7, 2013 Report Share Posted December 7, 2013 Hello, I am new to this. My father "Popee" bought a 1987 lotus esprit in 1990 and I have loved the car since the first day I sat in it when I was 13. My father passed 7 years ago and the car has been sitting for 15 years. He had some issues with the car and was trying to fix them himself on the weekends and I have no idea how far he made it or what was wrong. I am now trying to fix it myself and I don't know where to begin. I have oiled down the cylinders and I have it turning over but the gas pedal isn't working and I have no idea how it works or how to get gas to the cylinders. The clutch doesn't work and there is a laundry list of others. I'm wondering if it is easier to find a low mileage wreck w/ a good motor and swap it out or if I should continue trying to trouble shoot all the issues. Does anyone know how to find a complete replacement motor or how to find a full schematic on how to fix the throttle, fuel pump, clutch, etc? I am pretty handy w/ most American cars but this one is a little overwhelming. This was my pops car and he was my boy and I won't stop until it is restored so anyone that can help w/ info I would really appreciate it.
