I have a 97 528i BMW recently Ive been having problems starting it . When I turn the key it will try to start but wont actually turn over. I have a new battery so Im thinkin its the starter maybe??


It is most likely the immobiliser rather than starter if it does try to start, is it automatic or manual gearbox? If automatic, than try to take the negative cable of the battery and leave for 15-20 minutes without connection, than switch lights on before reconnecting the negative, this resets the computer so it might help. If it is manual, try a push start if the car starts and runs than it is the starter problem, if not than it will be immobiliser problem.

If you've never replaced the timing belt or chain,That would be my first thing I'd check is the Timing belt or chai, just aline the timing marks on crankshaft and then look at the position on the distributor to see if it's pointed in the #1 firing position .

Drive through flood


Start in the rear; test the battery first; then if all is well turn the key to the '0' key position and test all compotents that should work if all is good there, turn to try to start, if not nothing clicks or turns over then remove the starter and bench test it or take it to Auto Zone...if you have time, check the oil stick for water..Just go ahead and change the oils after you remove the spark plugs...never crank a engine that may have sucked water thru the air filter!!!
