Question about 1999 BMW 318 ti
Hi so my car wont start, i bought it as a suspected head gasket failure (loss of compression). So far i have had the cyliner head pressure tested and skimmed, replaced the head gasket, replaced the spark plugs and re set the timing (this was done with a home cut template and bolt etc but looks straight). It turnes over and sounds healthy but wont start when your cranking it, fuel is there, the spark is there, its started say maybe 3 times out of 50 on its own but the rest of the time it just cranks over and over.
The strange thing is that it bumpstarts no problem and can be driven but pisses its water out as the raidiator is leaking from the seam so it needs a new one but i dont want to purchase untill iv solved the starting issue.
It drove well when i bump started it for the short distance it went so why is it not starting from the key,
ANYBOSY PLEASE HELP MY OTHER HALF IS GOING MAD AND I CANT DEAL WITH HER STRESSING ANYMORE.........
