Change fuel filter.replace fuse and relay first that is the cheapest way .because you dont want to buy fuel pump first .too expensive.if fuse and relay dont work .you need a new fuel pump.

Fuel pump may be getting weak. If pressure is not high enough the injectors wont open.

Bmw 318i fuse box layout


have you measured the voltage @ the fuel pump or are assuming it has no power because it's not turning on? with that age of vehicle it could be corrosion of the electrical connectors. You really need to measure the voltage at the fuel pump to ensure no power is getting to it. If it has power, then likely the fuel pump sender unit (replace entire mechanism), if no power, then likely corrosion of the connectors.

Check a few things, check your spark plugs, spark plug wires, also check your fuel filter, fuel pump, but the first thing that you should check is the ground wire from your battery to the engine block

Engine turns over but does'nt run


basic thing need to be check, are you getting sparks and fuel. no spark, can be bad coil,rotor, distributor and sensor. no fuel, can be fuse, relay, fuel pump or sensor. The car need to things to fire and run, that's gas and fuel..check those first and see what happens.

The engine turns but the car won,t start.


You will need to check for fuel pressure or dirty filter. If you do not have fuel pressure; be sure to check fuses or any relay pertaining to fuel pump (if electric). If fuses and relays are good check or replace fuel filter. If the fuel pump is mechanical disregard fuses & relays and check or replace fuel filter. If this does not resolve the problem then the problem could be the fuel pump if mechanical, If its an electric fuel pump it could be a fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, crimped fuel line or other wiring issue.

These are the most common things I run across, oh, a crimped fuel line can cause the problem in either case electric or mechanical. Hope this helps in some way, been awhile sense I worked with an older car.

M43 engine wont start, fuel pump maybe?


Does it crank when you try to start it?
Does it even makes the effort to hump a little and the goes off again?
Probably a good tune-up and a new gas pump and fuel filter and you should be good to go.
