Re: [DML] Stalled in traffic

I have had it happen to me twice.  First time because I had a short in my plug wires, new wires fixed that.  Second time was a clogged fuel filter and that was just as easy to fix.

Coming home from work this week, my Delorean stalled in rush hour in 
the left turn lane of one of the busiest intersections in the south 
bay area. It wouldn't start back up. I had to push the car across 
the intersection and get a tow.

The next day, it started up effortlessly.

I haven't had this happen before and I've owned the car for almost 9 

Details: The car wasn't warmed up yet. I had only driven it about a 
mile when this happened. It was raining, and since I live in the 
south bay area, the car almost never gets rained on. While trying to 
start it up again, the starter was cranking just fine.

I'm thinking the moisture may have caused something to go wrong with 
the ignition. Or maybe it's the fuel pump relay. Any suggestions? I 
really don't want this to happen again. Flatbed towing isn't cheap. 
And the embarrassment of it all!
