Question about 2008 BMW 5 Series
First, test for spark at the ignition coil. take the power cable that connects from the ignition coil and disconnect the end at the distributor. hold the bare connecting end a fraction of an inch away from a metal paqrt of the cars frame and attempt to start. if the ignition coil is good, it should throw a spark. if the ignition coil sparks, next check your spark plugs for oil, grime, black or white discoloration on the spark tips (that point inside the engine). if there is a lot of build up or discoloration, replace the spark plugs. if this does not solve it, change your distributor cap, and if this doesnt slove it, change your spark plug wires.
