Question about 1988 BMW 5 Series
I have a '95 BMW 325i that is on its forth time of not starting. It seems to happen every 3 to 4 months where it just won’t turn over. It was towed three times to three different repair shops. The first one said it was just flooded and he put in new plugs because they said they were “fouled up” and it worked for a few months only to happen again. The second time it went to a different repair shop and again had to change the plugs because they were fouled up. It was back to running for a few months. The third time I was told that it was my fuel pump that need to be changed, which they did and also changed the plugs again. And now about three months later it’s down again. Symptoms include cranking but not turning over. Anybody have any experience with this kind of problem?
I had this problem in my shop and its been a Crank sensor and on one occasion it was a fuel pump relay that was bad. Most like its a the cranks sensor that's bad NOT the fuel pump relay but check both. To check see what missing when vehicle doesn't start or shuts off . If there is NO gas its the relay. If there is NO spark its the cranks sensor. Good Luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA
