You need to determine if it is a fuel or ignition problem. When it 
won't start again check to see if there is spark. If there isn't 
any I would suspect the pick-up coil in the distributer or the 
ignition coil, (assuming no loose connections in the primary circuit).

This is from my NSX club, as it also applies to the DeLorean owners. 

    Club Vitesse is having a track day at Summit Point's Jefferson Circuit
Saturday June 1.
There will be a diverse group of cars, including some vintage
sportscars, with lots of track time.  There will be SIX sessions
(compared with the normal four for most track days), with instructors
available.  Cost is $225.  Limited to 30-36 cars, so run groups will be
10-12 cars each.   Pls. email Dermot McDermott at DERMOTMCDERMOTT(AT)
for further details and an application.   Feel free to forward this
email to interested parties.  

    In addition, for those interested in sponsorship in the Washington, DC 
Grand Prix sponsored by Panoz, Cadillac, Bentley, etc., please email me _at_dml_ 
MichaelRPack1(AT) The response has been tremendous.  
    Additionally, I have been informed that the American Le Mans committee 
has sent sponsorship info, inviting the DeLorean service facilities and 
DeLorean Owners Association to participate as well.

I case you haven't seen the new machined shift knobs for Deloreans yet, go

and aluminum shereical replacement knobs and also two racier aluminum knobs 
especialy for Deloreans. In the near future I hope to have shift patterns 
available to those who want them.

Subject: Any owners near Gainesville, FL?

I have always loved DeLoreans, and since I graduate college next week I 
am more seriously thinking about getting one within the next year. 
 Unfortunately, I have only gotten to ride in one and that was a few 
years ago so I don't remember it much.  I was wondering if there is 
anyone near Gainesville, FL (or anywhere in North/Central Florida) that 
wouldn't mind showing off their car one day and taking me for a 
spin....I won't go as far as to ask for a test drive of somebody's baby 
:)  My main concern is acceleration...I know they are not speed demons, 
and I am used to driving Corvettes which are in a whole different 
league, but do they feel peppy or do they feel underpowered?  If I 
bought one it would have to be a 5-speed as I am a diehard manual 
transmission fan.

Please contact me off the list at my e-mail address below.

I don't know about the timing problem,  but make sure the electrical connector is on the solenoid (very easy to knock of when doing the wires), and that the vacumn lines are on the solenoid/vacumn advance correctly.  Check the lines and make sure there on the vac switch under the intake, attached to the water hose.  May have pulled one of while doing the tune up.

----- In Response To -----

Thanks to everyone who replied to my recent posts regarding my issues 
that I was having after doing a 'tune up'.  I'm still having the 
issues and hunting for a possible vacuum leak.  However, does the 
following scenario ring a bell to anyone as to where my problem may 
be stemming from?
