Crank sensor is your likely problem...I had the same problem with my 2003 e46

Good luck with it!

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

Why does my 1994 bmw 318i coolant disappear from expansion tank?


iT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE GOT AN AIR LOCK ....yOU NEED TO EXPAND YOUR EXPANSION TANK WITH A LARGE FUNNEL.... THIS ALLOWS THE AIR TO PUSH THE WATER UP WITHOUT LOSING IT ALL OVER THE FLOOR.......THE CAR NEEDS TO RUN UP TO TEMP TO ALLOW THE THERMO TO OPEN....THIS WILL ALLOW THE AIR & WATER TO FLOW ALL THROUGH THE SYTEM UNTIL IT REACHES THE EXPANSION TANK................HOPE THIS HELPS......PAUL B.

MY 2000 BMW 318I SE IS NOT ACCELERATING PROPERLY WHEN STARTING FROM COLD I PUT MY FOOT DOWN BUT THE CAR JUST JUDDERS ALONG IF I STOP AND REV THE ENGINE PAST 5000 IT THEN SEEMS OK AFTER ALSO THE EMISSION...


There isn't a car out there that likes to be put in drive as soon as it is started. Mine especialy. I give it at least 30 seconds to warm while I am adjusting evrything and away I go. Runs like a champ. Let it warm up for a couple of minutes from a cold start.

You need to make sure you have a good drive belt and verify that the tension is working,if all seems normal then get the alternator or the wiring to it tested.
