Question about 1999 BMW 323 Series

1 Answer

Very difficult to start in the mornings

Hi , I recently got given a 1999 automatic BMW 320i convertible from a family member. The idea is to try & fix it and sell it to make a few quid. When starting it in the morning it is a nightmare as it takes forever.
it does fire up eventually with alot of help from the accelarator pedal and once started the amount of smoke that comes out from the exhaust is ridiculus. Could any1 tell me what this might be and if there a linked problem. Thanks

Hello.

In the first instance. Unhook the air flow sensor and see if this make a difference. If it does your Mass Air flow sensor needs cleaning or replacing.

Try changing your airfilter and Spark plugs. I would also use some heavy duty injuctor cleaner in the fuel.

You may have a leak directly onto the fuse panel. When new harness was put in the connections were good and tight with the protective cosmoline. But over time it have deteriorated and water is now getting onto the back of the fuse panel. Had a couple Rabbits that had that problem. Turns out it was a common problem.

Bmw alternator


It can be the brushed in the alternator worn or the regulator in the alternator is bad. How many miles do you have on it? The regulator and brush assembly can be obtained and installed fairly easily.

My bmw 320i 05 model wont start (no sound) and there is no dead battery sign on the dash board


If your battery is dead enough, even the dead battery indicator won't light. Take the battery to an autoparts store for a bench test/charge first before trying anything else.

My bmw 320i e90 2005 only cranks but won't start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
