Check for a wet ecu....

the ecu compartment is under the windshield on the passenger side on E36

you gain acess to it under the hood....
this compartment gets wet, the ecu lays on a flat surface in that
compartment.

the bottom side of the circuit board gets wet and starts corrosion.

remove the ecu, take the bottom plate off, clean the bottom of the circuit
board with alcohol and a soft tooth brush.

you should be able to see the signs of corrosion or conductive build up.

this gunk bridges solder points doing all sort s of wierd things to your
car, including false sensor readings from asc/abs controllers and other
sensors....

all the way to engine failure and worst case burnt and shorted wiring
harness.

I'm on my 3rd ecu, took me and the repair boys a few years to figure this
one out.

BTW: i would get that ecu mounted above that flat surface, use some sort
of standoff to raise it so that it is not laying in the wet.

How do I know wich one is the relay for the gaz pomp on a 1999 Mazda B2500


You look it up in factory service info , look at a wiring diagram , fuse box diagram etc.... This vehicle also has an inertia fuel shut off switch . You can view all this at http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html

Also know that the PCM - engine computer turns on the fuel pump relay . If there is no crankshaft position sensor (RPM signal ) to the PCM ,the PCM will not turn on the fuel pump relay . Relay #5 is fuel pump relay . Do you know how to test electrical circuits ? Use a Volt meter ? Or are you just going to replace the relay and hope that's the problem .

Cranks but won't start


Depending on the year make and model, a DTC (diagnostic trouble code) would help. Is the check engine light on when it does run? Testing needs to be done. Check for spark at the plug, make sure fuel pressure is what it should be and that the fuel injectors are working. If all that is good, I would check compression and timing.

Runs for less than a half hour and shuts down. Fuel to the rail but not into injectors.Fuel pump, fuel filter,brain, module, crank sensor, oil pressure sensor have all been changed. Starts again after...


Hello: If this is a 4cylinder engine with the distributor on the back of the engine (toward the passenger compartment) I would rebuild/replace the distributor. Including distributor cap and rotor.

Engine cuts out


BMW CUTS OUT
A few things to check.
  1. Is fuel pump delivering enough fuel.
  2. Is injectors clean. Perhaps dirt in fuel. replace fuel filter
  3. Air leakage at top air intake of manifold at ICV idle control valve. Two hoses inside this housing prone to perishing.
  4. Throttle position sensor faulty.
  5. Mass air flow sensor faulty.
  6. ICV faulty or dirty. comon fault on older e36.
Havent done it yet but ICV is easy to clean according to internet. instruction available at bmw e36 blog. All off above can be tested by yourself according to manual.
