Re: fuel problems



Cold start valve located AFTER fuel distributor.

Does mechanic know DeLoreans? Has he jumped RPM relay to rule out
electrical problems to pump? Also need to ensure fuse #7 making good
contact, especially under road vibrations. Check grounds from
pump/inertia switch AND ignition module. Grounding points are a
DeLorean Achilles Heel (plastic car).

If engine is shutting off randomly problem most likely electrical.

the pump both are less then 1 1/2 years old but the car did sit for
about 3 plus months without running any suggestions please help????? 
Mechanic says it is a fuel problem not electric or relay problem!
