[DML] Engine Dies at idle HELP!

Hello all,

My car is manifesting a new problem. The car will start then idle at 
1000 rpm for about 10-15 seconds then die.  If i push on the 
accellerator or turn the spindle the engine will abruptly die.  If the 
car manages to stay running for about thirty seconds I can turn the 
spindle and the engine will begin to respond, first coughing and 
bogging down, then eventually respond like normal.  (once warm??) 

What the heck is this? I searched the archives and the closest thing I 
can come to is that it may be related to the control preassure 
regulator. I removed the fuel line going from the center of the fuel 
dist. to the CPR and the screen had a some dirt around the edges. I 
removed it, still has this problem.  I drained my battery twice so far 
trying to solve this!

Since I am relatively new to the Delorean I must also ask this:  When 
the key is turned to the "on" position I hear a click and a buzz (I 
think the frequency valve) then the buzzing stops and will not start 
again until I turn the crank. I removed the cover from the RPM relay 
and confirmed that the click is from that relay. Is this a normal 
condition? Also when the engine is running the sound of the frequeency 
valve changes and immediately causes the idle to fluctuate up and down 
(300 RPM or so) with the change in sound.  Normal, or $&#@*& up?

Alot, I know but this newby needs the help! Thanks!
