Remove battery terminals and clean both posts and terminals
with sandpaper until you see shiny metal. The black coating is lead sulphate which has a high resistance to current flow both into and out of the battery. Check that the terminals are tight

My 2000 323i will start some times then next time it wont you can wait 5 mins and it will start or sometimes it can take longer what can cause this

Will crank but will not start?
Could be a ignition control module, or fuel pump electric system

Will not crank at all? Could be a faulty or lose electric connection, either primary ignition starting circuit ( starter solenoid, neutral safety) or secondary starting power ( starter motor, power cable terminals)

Why will it start only if I just bump the key?

What I understand from your posting is that if you use the key to start in the normal way, then it will not start, but if you turn the ignition on and 'bump start' the vehicle without using the starter motor, the vehicle starts. If this is correct, then the problem is that the starter motor is consuming all the power for itself and the resultant voltage drop means that the coil and ignition are left wanting for power. Thus you don't get a good enough spark when the starter is engaged. The causes could be a number of things:- a weak battery, dirty or incorrectly set spark plugs, bad ignition leads causing tracking, badly set points gap or dirty points. bad starter motor (worn brushes or 'leaking' coil windings).
Personally, I would start with getting the ignition system up to scratch, new points and plugs, then correctly adjust the ignition timing.

Car starts, then dies within 2or3 seconds.

Try this start eng and before it dies disconnect the starter solenoid, and hold the ignition in the crank position like you are starting it, if the engine remains running replace the ignition switch, they come apart and cause this issue

Intermittant stuttering/surging when starting

Rough idle or stalling. Ignition timing is controlled by the electronic control ignition timing system. The standard reference ignition timing data for the engine operating conditions are pre-programmed in the memory of the engine control module (ECM). The engine operating conditions (speed, load, warm-up condition, etc.) are detected by the various sensors. Based on these sensor signals and the ignition timing data, signals to interrupt the primary current are sent to the ECM. The ignition coil is activated, and timing is controlled. Check for any fault at: Spark plugs faulty Replace plugs Ignition wiring faulty Replace wiring Ignition coil faulty Replace ignition coil High tension cord faulty Replace high tension cord
