Question about 2003 BMW 325

2003 bmw 325 i - started but sounded bad, ck engine light came on

When I backed it up and you could smell fuel. Car did, I got it restarted, but parked it in the drive way and turned it off. Fuel smell is really strong - does this sound like a fuel pump issue or something else.

My 2000 BMW 323i 2.5 liter car just died, will not start back up. Engine light is on as well as the EML light. Any suggestions on how to fix it and what is wrong?

first verify the basics--fuel and spark. If these are present, then timing. It may be your crankshaft position sensor. A scan would help verify but with the car not starting, you would need someone to bring a scanner to the car...

Please see my tip at . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Hard as hell to get 325i 1991 started first thing in the morning. Mass Air Box good,new plugs and fuel filter. Any Ideas... Once it gets warmed up runs great ? Shannon

This is a 19 year old 325 with presumably over 150000 miles on the clock so you can expect many problems to crop up if you keep the car.

1. Check the oxygen sensor which will die on these engines.

2. Check the engine coils which are also prone to failure and may be on their last legs.

If the car is frequently parked in the open in freezing conditions you will have trouble starting it because the electronics will play up.

Check engine light comes on but car runs great 2002 bmw 325i and

The check engine light could be any number of things and the only way to find out is have the codes scanned. The brake light issue is common on E46 3 series. It is an issue were the brown ground wire that goes into the lamp housing melts at the connector causing a loose ground connection. The connector needs to be replaced and also add additional grounding wires to prevent further issues. And for fuel additives either use the cheveron techron, or the bmw fuel additive(the bmw stuff is the exact same thing, so just use which ever is cheaper).
