Question about 1988 BMW 7 Series

1 Answer

Car won't start

The car has been sitting for 3 months. I replaced the Fuel Pump, but will not start. It turns over but says "OIL PRESSURE SENSOR--SEE OWNERS MANUEL" Does it just need an oil change to start. Please advise.

Before you do that, you may need to replace the oil sensor switch but you need to have it checked first. If the oil sensor switch is bad, it may not allow your vehicle to start to not risk doing any engine damage.

97 mercury mountaineer. won't start


hi,

watch your oil pressure when cranking, you have to have some oil pressure to get the fuel system to start. you may have to find the hot wire at the relay and energize it to see if it is indeed the fuel pump going out. if its been sitting and its a 97 the fuel pump just might have went, you can also try hitting the gas tank from the outside in the middle to see if that works too. have a water hose or fire extinguisher around when your working on fuel system and leave one of your battery cable a little loose..

Won`t start when cold


No such thing on your car.
The temp sensor tells the computer what the engine coolant temp is.
If it were faulty you would get a check engine light.
I would have the fuel pressure checked before and after you crank the engine. The pump relay provides power to the pump when you turn the key on to recover some of the lost fuel pressure after the car sits. The one way valve in the pump is supposed to prevent the pressure from dropping.
If the fuel pressure drops to zero it could take some time to crank the engine enough to get it back up.

fuel pick-up in tank is blocked it has a sock over the end as a gross filter to keep out any big junk from getting sucked into the pump and causing damage to it. the sock can get so plugged up that no fuel will flow, causing the pump to run for a short time then with no fuel flow to cool it it trips the safety and shuts off

If I remember correctly, the signal for the pump comes from the cam sensor. The pump should run for 3-6 seconds when the key is first turned to the "on" position and then when the ECU registers pulse from the cam sensor it sends the signal to the relay to run the pump. If you have a signal coming out of the cam sensor I would look to ECU replacement.
