Question about BMW 318

1 Answer

BMW 318ti '95 my car doesnt start up properly...

Whenever I drive the car for a while and leave it parked for 10min, i have issues with starting it up again. It just doesnt start properly... I turn the key and the engine starts to run, but then just dies out. I am then left hitting the gas (in neutral) in order to keep the car from shutting down again... I recently replaced the battery, and had the plugs checked and nothing ''wrong'' was found... any ideas of what the cause might be??

The most common cause of this problem is a defective check valve in the fuel pump, another less common issue is using the wrong octane gasoline.

Possibilities:
  • Fuel contamination issue;
  • Ignition system problem;
  • ECU failure.
Start by having stored codes read out from your ECU, and diagnose issues based on sensor data.
