Why dose my bmw 3srz 1995 stalls while driving then then cranks but wont start for about 5 min what to do tdo to fi?


Ask a local mechanic to have a look for you ,faults could be anything for this problem although i would suspect that the petrol pump could be faulty or the electrical connections to the pump which is under the back seat behind a cover which allows access to the pump /sender unit ,could also be the elcetrical connection on the unit playing up as well so look for burnt connections in the socket to this unit

It is most likely one of two issues. Either the Camshaft sensor, or the Crankshaft sensor. Neither is too expensive nor too hard to replace. Try the Cam Sensor first. The 5.2L seems to have these more often. The 2.5L has the same problem, but it's usually the Crank Sensor.

You didnt list the type of car this is, the most common thing that causes this is the starter, i just had a saturn, the customer had the same problem we told her it may be the starter but cant be 100% sure until it actted up, she didnt want to replace it unless we were sure, so we kept and drove the car around for 5 days and finally the last day it didnt start and it was the starter , same problem turn key and nothing no noise and no start, i would have the starter replaced and go from there, its a mater of time before the car just wont start,hope this is helpful.

You most likely have a bad fuel pump. Very common symptoms your describing, If your handy try squirting some brake cleaner into the throttle body when this happens. If it starts you now know what to do. Also be sure the battery terminals are clean. Voltage drops can cause a fuel pump not to run or run ineffeciently.
