Question about 1997 BMW 328
Hi its probably dragged sh#t from your tank, is your petrol pump external if so,so is the fuel filter. change it, its easier than trying to flush it. once thats done. foot on excelerator and turn over if problem solved car will start within 20 seconds max. if however its air locked, crack the fuel line open at the injectors and turn over with some one watching for petrol to come through as soon as it does stop and tighten up injectors, car should then start, if it still doesnt start it could be muck actually in your in injectors, they will need taking out and cleaning,,,,but we will get to that if all others fail, please let me know what happens, i hope this helps

SOURCE: Hi We have a few q's
Are you sure it ran out of gas? Check fuel pressure. these are famous for breaking the timing belt. Does it sound normal when cranking? If not, check and make sure the cam is turning, if not. you have a broken timing belt and bent valves.

If you can hear the pump run and you get no fuel its the pump, If it blew the fuse i would say the pump tied up. That happens when you run around on empty a lot, gas is what keeps pumps cool when you run under 1/8 of a tank pump is not submerged in gas to keep cool hense pump burns up.

The electric fuel pump in this car is located inside the fuel tank, it is a very small pump but able to do its job without burning out because it is cooled by the gas it is immersed in, when you run out of gas you severely overheated the pump and it seizes up the rotor that pumps the gas. You should avoid ever letting the fuel tank level go below 1/8 tank on gauge to avoid pump damage from heat. Bottom line you will need to replace the fuel pump. I have seen this happen dozens of times in cars towed to the shop after they ran out of fuel..
