Well, the dying is not at all "normal" for the DeLorean.  Mine starts 
quickly all the time, in any temperature, and never dies.  To get it that 
way did require some parts (accumulator and an RPM relay just for good 
measure).  There could be lots of thing that cause that; I would start with 
the usual check for vacuum leaks, microswitches, fuel pressure, injectors, 
etc.  Of course, I don't think Jeremiah or switzel need to worry about being 
stranded anytime soon.  For switzel, I would suggest starting in the tank. 
The tank is the only spot that should really be affected by slope.  Maybe 
you're choking up some air when on the incline?  If your accumulator is 
original, definitely replace that first.
