2.4 dohc wont fire

You would help your self buy buying a code reader there very inexpensive . My guess would be that your firing Modular is not working follow your spark plug wires to the modular and check it . Take your ohm meter and find out if your showing any power going into the modulator it not suspect the main fuss . Do a crank test and see if your getting fire if not the modulator is bay replace.

I have a 325 tds bmw starts not to bad in the morning takes a bit of turning but seems to run ok but if stoped for 10 mins after a good run it turns over for a good bit before it will start again just got...

You may have a bad fuel pressure regulator. Once the engine fires the fuel flows good and you have pressure, but when the engine is off, the pressure isn't there to force fuel to the injectors. It's a possible but it could be numerous things.

Van was running fine stoped for five minutes will not start now what could it be only has 109k

does the engine turn over. If it does turn over, is it slow. If it does turn over, it could be the coil not firing, or no gas getting to the throttle body. Spray a little starter fluid in the throttle body and try to start the engine, see if it fires off at all with starter fluid. These are simply done, just hope it's nothing major. Give a little more detail about what it is doing.

Disconnect alternator wiring; disconnect battery for a minute; reconnect battery & see if it starts & runs. If it works, replace alternator. If no difference, could be ECU error caused by alternator fault or carelessness with wiring when installing (spark to ECU perhaps). Check ECU codes (short the two-pin blue socket sitting loose on the transmission tunnel below the dash, switch ignition on and count any flashes of the check engine light (MIL))
