Question about BMW 318
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.
