My grandpa has a 1980 BMW 320i. He used to drive it around all the time, but one morning he goes to start it up and it wont start for nothin. It Turns Over Fine. He tinkered with it for some time now and so far he's replaced the rotor, distributor cap, plug wires, and fuel filter. The fuel sending unit in the tank works fine. IT JUST WONT START!
ANY SUGGESTIONS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!!!!
My 323i has a loose relay that sometimes prevents the car from starting. Look at the relay/fuse box and check the relay that is on the outside/engine side of the fuse block towards the battery. Also, this spring, my car would not fire. Following an idea posted here, I gave it a shot of starter spray into the air intake...it started right up! Total mystery why this worked...maybe a slug of bad fuel?
