Sounds like you need to replace the accumulator.. I think what happens
is the check valve in the accumulator leaks, letting fuel pressure drop
when the car isn't running and the heat from the engine is causing the
fuel system to vapor lock.  I've heard this is a very common problem on
anything using this type of bosch fuel injection, not just specificly
the delorean.. New accumulators run about $100 but it's in a kind of
pain in the butt spot to get too to replace it. especially if you don't
have a lift.
