It could be the engine control module. Try to get a good used module from the junkyard and try your luck. All the best !!

I have replaced my 1993 318isa module two times myself!! GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: bmw e36 immobilised, iginition lights come on, but

BMW E36 immobilizer Hope the following will help. Had similar problems. The transmitter buttons on keys is for central locking and alarm. Inside the key at the front there is a small electronic/magnetic chip that looks like a block. About 8mm long, 2mm deep and 4mm wide, not connected to any pc board. This is the immobilizer. It must match the receiver that is located behind the ignition switch. If it is loose and too far away from the receiver it won?t deactivate it. If you made a spare key it will switch on electrics but won?t start the car. If you don?t have an immobilizer chip any alarm shop will be able to program a new chip or install a new pair for your keys. There is a way to disable the immobilizer but rather have it fix and protect your car. I read an article somewhere (perhaps bmw e36 blog) of people removing this immobilizer. Good luck

2001 ford taurus, 3.0 vulcan motor. just rebuilt the whole motor, backfires out of the intake, seems to be out of firing order. i triple checked my work and can't find the problem. whistling sound of...


Back firing out of the intake is because the valves/cams are not set right. When you did the timing belt . did you set the crankshaft mark at top dead center of the compression stroke. If it's at the exhaust stroke this would cause backfiring and violent shaking.

NO comprassion on no 4


sounds like a burned valve. If exhaust, you should hear it popping in the exhaust. If intake, it should backfire in the intake. Ohterwise a hole in the pistion from timing advanced to far.

Motor backfires when you slow down to go around when you start to accelerate sometimes it will backfire


Your main problem could be anything from Timimg out by 2mm
problem with hole in exhaust system ,,or a gasket blown on the intake.
To much fuel getting in the engine and as you throttle back the extra fuel in the chambers fire without a spark.. with the heat of pistons
The way to check the exhaust is get someone to listen to the engine in park and you put on a glove and put your hand over the tail pipe and if the engine stops and cannot hear a whistle under the bonnet then the exhaust is ok
Let me know how you get on ASAP Ron

Turns over really fast will not catch n start.... not firing almost acts like its gonna backfire...like air popping


The timing belt has jumped a tooth, you must d a compression test, then get a repair manual to check if the mechanical timing is of indicating a jumped tooth on the timing belt.

Change spark plugs and now car wont start.....1994 ford tarus


Do you have the "firing order" correct? In other words, is each spark plug wire going to the same cylinder it was on before you changed the plugs? If you have done nothing else but changed the plugs then this is the most likely problem.
If when you try to start the car it backfires through the exhaust or backfires through the intake. Then this " IS" the problem. Good luck.

Samurai backfire


It sounds more like a timing problem. If it backfires through the carb that means the intake valve is open when the spark plug fires. Same with the exaust but it the exhaust valve that is open.
