          Hello Group,

I was driving my DeLorean today, and everything was going fine, so I 
thought...As I made a left hand turn the car died and would not 
restart. At first I thought the problem was the fuel pump (as the 
pump was not running at all) however after towing it home I jumped 
the fuel pump and it worked, but the car still wouldn't start. I 
don't hear the normal buzzing of the frequency valve either. 
Needless to say this problem is very troubling. Could this be a 
symptom of a bad RPM relay? 

Furthermore, want to try swapping out the RPM relay, however I don't 
have my shop manual here in Michigan, as my DMC manuals are back at 
my parents house in IL. Could somebody tell me which relay is the 
RPM relay?

I'm hoping to get this fixed ASAP since I need to have my D out of 
its current garage by the end of next month. If this is something 
major I may just need to put the car on e-bay. I would hate to sell 
it, but after 9 years of dealing with DMC issues my patience is 
wearing out and this one might be the final straw.
