Bmw 327i died while running

Car sat for about 8 months. It would turn over but not start. After hours of trouble shooting dicovered that the Fuseable link was bad. Got it running and while driving it just died. Everything has power, car turns over but will not start. Thinking it might be the fuel pump but no really sure how to make sure of that...Any suggestions??????

First shoot your son. It is not the fuseable link, when a fuseable link blows you get no power at all to anything. I suspect you have a security system that needs to be reset.

MUTIPORT FUEL INJECTION PONTIAC FIREBIRD 3.1


My 92 Bird with the 3.1 did the same thing after it sat for about 2 months. The car had aways started right away before. I had to jump start it and I thought it would never start.Same as yours after it started. Seem to get better after I ran it awhile. It was getting good spark and was getting fuel. I checked fuel pressure, it seemed to be within specs.then it started to sputter and the pressure dropped to almost nothing. Seems that the fuel pump was going bad, but still would pump enough fuel at times to run. When the car was parked the fuel pressure would bleed off, and when I tried to start it the pump had trouble pumping enough fuel to pressure the system.Long story short! Replace the fuel pump, and filter.....

My car randomly wont start. I put a new battery. it will however startif I get a jump. my post are clean


I had a similar problem.  It was driving me crazy.  If car sat for more that 3-4 hours I would have a dead battery.  It turns out that this apparently is a relatively common problem with BMWs.  What was occurring is that the blower fan for the ac/heater was randomly turning on and off while the car sat.  If the car sat for more than a couple of hours, the fan was draining the battery.  It was about a $250 fix at the shop.
