Question about 2001 BMW 325
I was driving my 1993 BMW the other day and all at once the engine shut down and I was left coasting into the shoulder of the road. I tried cranking the car and giving it gas numerous times until it finally started up again. After driving it a few hundred feet it attempted to stall out again but I gave it a considerable amount of gas to keep it from stalling out and it seemed to work well enough to get me home safely. Then today I started the car after a few unsuccessful attempts and drove for a few miles without incident. Hoping that the problem had mysteriously vanished I decided to press my luck and take the car out this evening. After letting the car sit for a few hours I started it up on the first attempt and subsequently had the engine stall out on me prior to the end of the block. I am guessing there is an air bubble in the fuel line or some fuel pump issue where the engine is not consistently receiving gas. Thanks for any and all recommendations!
To save you all the hassle check your spark plugs & distributor first if you are getting a spark. To do that first take out the number one spark plug wire it will be the one closest to the distributor. Second take out the spark plug, then put the spark plug in the spark plug wire. Turn on the engine u should see a spark at the spark plug if your distributor is ok and spark plug. If not replace your distributor.
