Does the tachometer keep working when it dies on the highway?

The CD ignition box emits a high pitched squeel when the ignition is on, you should maybe familiarize yourself with this noise for future reference.

Sometimes, the plug on the bottom is loose and needs to be connected properly, it can be a PITA

You may have fuel issues on startup, sounds like you could be in a temp range where the coldstart valve doesn't engage or maybe isn't working??

There is a little plunger sticking up on the very top of the motor between the Airbox and the fuel distributor with all the fuel lines connected to it.

Sometimes you can turn the ignition on and push down on this plunger to give it a shot of fuel, it can help with vaporlock or other weird CIS issues, you should here the injectors squeel when you puch down, not too much or you could flood it... just a little "eek" should do...

I dunno, just a few things it could be... Good luck!
