Okay, I've had the car for about 2 months (86 325es, MT), and every once in a while, the car just does not want to start. All I get when I turn the key is this whirring sound that is below and behind the drivers side. I've looked up this problem before, and I guess that whirring noise (even when running) is an omen of fuel pump problems. Funny thing is, it is intermittent. There is no rhyme or reason to why it won't start sometimes. So, does this sound like I have this troubleshot, and need a fuel pump, or do I need to investigate some more? Obviously, I might have some electrical problems (yay) sooo, that kinda sucks. I have some other stuff I have to do to the car, pretty much tune up stuff that should have been done before I bought the car, but I couldn't resist. Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm hoping to drive on, but until then.....
Drive on, Bimmerheads.
