[DML] Delorean wont start

Hi Guys, 

Thanks for the advice. 

I brought the car up to my Dads house on Thursday night and called up last
night to work on things. 

I brought with me my box of "old and removed" parts to start changing bits
over and low and behold it turned out to be a faulty coil that I had fitted
last year brand new. 

What was initially throwing me was that I was getting a spark and fuel (I
spoke to Paul O and got some advise on checking the fuel properly along with
a few other things - thanks Paul) but still would not fire, even with easy

Then the next time I checked it there was no spark and then another time
there was so we (Dad and I) decided to replace the coil first and just try
eliminating parts. 

So we removed all of the spark plugs (well 5 of them - you all know which
five! lol) and turned the engine over a bit to clear things out. Warmed the
spark plugs up, squirted small amount of easy start into the plug holes and
screwed them in again. Then turned the car over for a bit and everything
came to life. I also was flicking the fuel relay at the time but still am
putting things down to the coil because when I switched them back again the
problem returned. Ive now got the original coil (bosch) in the car and the
car is starting on the button as opposed to a few turnsover to get going. 

Ill get onto the vendor about a possible replacement because I would have
thought a coil would last for longer than a year, especially in a car that
is not driven every day. I also have the coil cover in case anyone is

Thanks again for the advice.
