Question about BMW 325
I have a 1986 BMW 325es and the car will start then immediately idle down and off. I've replaced the two fuel pumps, fuel pressure regulator, fuel filter and the thermo time switch. Still won't stay running. I did pull one spark plug out and check for spark and confirmed spark. Do I need to check all plugs. Could a bad rotor, cap , plugs , wires, coil cause this. I don't think its fuel delivery. Maybe crank senser , ECU?
HELP!!!!! cars been down for two months now.
I have had the same problem at times. my car would start and then shut off. but i found that i needed oil and check my oil and it was a quater low put in some oil and everything went fine i notices that everytime the oil is low the same thing happens also depending on the position of the car being park meaning that if you are in a down hill position or up hill position i will do the same. so you have to accelarate for 1 minute to have the oil go up. i hope this works

Fuel Injector cold start valve, this will directly affect the problem you are having.
Good luck, and let me know if there is anything else. Also, replacing the distributor cap and rotor are never a bad idea. along with the plugs and wires. with the price of fuel, it never hurts to get better mpg.
