Does the fuel pump have power to the connector when the engine is being cranked? Does the engine start and die when starting fluid is sprayed into the intake? Is there power at the fuel pump relay?

Ran out of gas 325e bmw turns over great but won't start

replace fuel pump. you never run out of gas in a BMW...what's wrong with you? It breaks the fuel pump. It's against the BMW code to sit there on the side of the road waiting for bubba and his towtruck and red can of gas. BMW.....come on. you're supposed to have enough money to buy gas. Anyway, the penalty for going against the bmw code of looking like Jed Clampett on the side of the road for gas is: A broken fuel pump.

Car sat 3 years, tried to start. Had to replace fuel filter, still not getting fuel.

Did you check to make sure fuel is getting as far as the filter? Detach the fuel line at the filter and have someone crank the engine. If fuel doesn't get to the end of the line you've got a clog somewhere else or there's a break in the fuel line.

How to find fuel pump relay on 1985 bmw 318i

I have a 1985 bmw 528e 5 series. It won't start and we think it has something to do with the fuel injector. Is there a relay for that or a fuse that would stop that from working? We get gas to the injectors but none going past.

My bmw 318 ran out of petrol now it wont start i have changed fuel filter

if you can't hear the fuel pump cut in for a couple of seconds, check the fuse. Check the relay, or replace it with a known good one. See if you have power to the fuel pump. If you have power, your fuel pump is in need of replacement.
When you run an electric fuel pump out of gas, you should always cycle it about 10 times before you try to start the engine. That is, turn the key to on for a few seconds, and then off, and repeat. You need to get some fuel up to the engine.

No power to fuel pump.

Don't forget to check for a good ground at the pump, I've seen this problem pay for a new fuel pump more than once.

Stalls out about every 10 miles or so,let sit bout 5min,restarts

have you changed the plugs and leads, if you don't know the last time it was started there is a few things you need to take into account, engine oil and spark plugs fuel filter even the fuel in the tank empty and replace, coil and the points ( if upgraded there is no coil and points as been converted) you would also need to clean out the carburetor as old fuel drying can block or limit fuel entering the engine. change air filter. even standing an engine for a year or 2 these parts can degrade as they have not been used. also change the water and flush the system and refill with coolant/antifreeze.
