If your starter whines over it is obviously getting power so its not a relay problem, it is probably the starter solenoid that is sticking so the starter dog is not engaging with the flywheel to crank your engine. The relay sits on top of the starter low down on the engine at the bellhousing on the left side of the car!

BMW 318i starts fine but once you drive it for 5 minutes switch it off, it wont start again.


sounds like a engine sensor i'd guess at the crank sensor but to be sure you would need to get the OBD codes read , this will give the exact fault so wont waste money trying sensor(s) on a hit an miss basis,you can buy a code reader online not expensive just make sure it covers your vehicle make then you have a valuable diag equipment for future use

Wont start 318is


Check that your ICV ( idle control Valve) is actually alive. This is what used to happen with mine. It is located right below the throttle flap, you will see a hose going to it. Quick fix: adjust the throttle cable a tiny bit, so you have more revs and engine doesn't shut off easily. Wish you all the best!

2003 crown victoria cranks wont start, was running fine, just cut out.never started again


As with any no-start situation, you need to know if you have spark to the plugs, fuel to the injectors, and normal compression to proceed.

I have bmw 316i n reg went out to start it and there was nothing it would bump start so i changed starter motor and next day was fine then day after it done it again does anyone know what it could be...


there may be a damaged wire coming from the receiver ring which sits round your ignition lock, this "reads" your key and allows the starter to turn your engine over so if there is an intermittant fault here that could cause your non-starting.

Need to know how to set the timing


Cylinder #1 set at TDC, compression stroke. Cam marks level with head, aligned with mark on cover, or if unclear where to mark the cam: SET Cam at point where intake valve has just closed and both valves are shut on cyl. #1, cam gear marks should start to appear more clearly to technician, along with corresponding alignment points. This is ballpark. Remember, on clockwise rotation, after cylinder #1 intake valve(s) are shut, the cam will continue to rotate 90 degrees and come to rest at a position in which both exhaust and intake valves are at their maximum lash point. (the most play) Hopefully if you get this close, you will decipher the marks that exist on your Bavarian machine.

BMW 318i wont start engine


I would have the battery tested. When they get cold they get weak. Next I would look at the wires on the starter to see if their loose.
